The Union-Castle Line, operating between Europe and Africa, was formed by the merger of the Union Line and the Castle Shipping Line. Most of their ships contained the suffix "Castle" in their names. Although the name of this ship is indistinct, it appears to be the Carnarvon Castle, which was launched in 1926.
