Re: History - Luriline and Britanis

Matson's "white ship" Luriline (Albatros 158) (circa 1932) and Chandris Line's Britanis (AL 158a) (circa 1990). In 1963 Luriline, after Pacific service interrupted by a World War II stint as a transport, was sold to and modernized by Chandris Line, becoming Ellinis. Meanwhile, one of Luriline's four sisters, Monterey (1931) after war service took on consecutive names as Matsonia (1954), Luriline (1963/4), and finally Britanis having been sold to Chandris in 1970.
