S.S. Belgian

Official Number: 140659

 

The Belgian was a Leyland Line ship.In the immediate post-war years the Atlantic Transport Line, which had lost much of its fleet, used ships from other units of the International Mercantile Marine Company or obtained through the U.S. Shipping Board.

An advertisement placed by the line in the London Times on January 18, 1924, lists the Belgian as scheduled to sail as a freighter for it from the Royal Albert Dock in London on March 15 to Baltimore and Norfolk via Boston and New York. She is also recorded in a list of passengers disembarking at London in February of 1922 sailing for the Leyland Line from Baltimore.
