Key to Symbols
She was built to replace the pioneering A B C ferries which were becoming to much of a success and were seriously struggling to keep up with the demand on them
In June 1964, she became the first unit of the fleet to receive the lion Emblem on her funnel which is now well recognized symbol of the modern fleet. After appearing on almost all the Calmac network she took up Clyde cruising in her last days in service
