The SS Norway (former SS France) was the last of the great transatlantic liners from the golden age of the liners and was sent to Alang shipbreakers and is now scrapped.

This was really nice, seeing the ship in Invergordon. I was onboard as Chief Officer this day, and I have a picture taken by a photographer from the local newspaper I think, when we passed the cut before Invergordon. Remember he felt so proud when he realized that we were flying the Scottish flag, and on this pic you can see it clearly lighten up. I ordered this flag my self from the agent in Southampton before we left, and he asked "why do you need a Scottish flag, you can use the red one with the Union Jack?". I replied: - "the Scottish people have their own flag which they use in all international sport tournaments and we will honour them by flying it, so please, bring it onboard". I got my will... I also remember what a fantastic day it was. And when we sailed, there were at least two bagpipe orchestras on the pier, which gave me and many others goose bumps when they played on the sail away. Fantastic! Best regards from Geir - Endre Johansen, Honningsvaag, North Cape, Norway.
