Repro ID: G1779
Description: The 'Lady Jocelyn' under way. Built as part of the first regular mail service to India, she brought troops home from the India Mutiny in 1858. In 1863 she carried troops to New Zealand for the second Maori War. After a period as the 'Brazil', she was converted into a sailing ship and was chartered by Shaw, Savill & Co from 1869. Between 1872 and 1881, she carried emigrants from London to New Zealand, and between 1882 and 1889 she carried general and refrigerated cargo from New Zealand. From 1889, she was laid up as a hulk in the West India and Royal Victoria Docks and used in a variety of roles. She was broken up in 1923.
