In 1928, she came to a Norwegian company and was renamed the SS Pelagos. Torpedoed in 1944, she was refloated the following year and continued to serve until her demolition in 1962. History The 12,234-ton steamship Athenic was built on the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast and launched on 17 August 1901. Athenic was the first of three identical sister ships which were built for the profitable freight and passenger service from London to Wellington, New Zealand. The other two were the SS Corinthic (1902) and the SS Ionic (1903). They were the first orders of the White Star Line after its takeover by J. P. Morgan's International Mercantile Marine Company (IMMC). On 13 February 1902, she sailed into London on her maiden voyage to Wellington via the Canary Islands, Cape Town and Hobart. She remained on the New Zealand route until the outbreak of World War II.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SS_Athenic (accessed 22/9/2017) Media Upload Media Sources Reference Log of Logs, Vol 3 Location South Australian Maritime Museum Author Ian Nicholson Reference South Australian Maritime Museum, on authorisation from Catherine/Amy Publisher Michael Kelleher Location SAMM Author Michael Kelleher Comment My grandparents Peter Elizabeth Scott (not verified) on Mon, 2020-06-08 14:10 My grandparents Peter MacNeill and Marion Cameron migrated from Scotland to New Zealand in 1902 per the “Athenic”. reply My grandmother ida Davidson SHONA fromholc (not verified) on Wed, 2020-07-01 05:49 My grandmother ida Davidson emigrated to New Zealand in 1908 travelling in The Athenic.

I’m guessing this is someone’s initials? Anyone recognise them? Or have a way I could find out. Box has a zinc lining and has been in our family for at least 30 years, down in hunterville.
