Very similar indeed to the first one on this thread. Some minor differences. What is the diameter of anzani torque tubes?

Still trying to find details of the second "dutch" one. No response from the Americans on another forum which leads me to conclude it is not from there.

They have no markings. For that matter nor does the side bracket and nor the skeletal.

Hi Hugo - just following your digression - the so-called Liberty Ships we notorious for breaking up in rough seas - don't know if 'notorious' was one or two or a whole lot more. They were brought together as welded-up sections from different yards, and one was reported as having a mismatch of seven feet! Can imagine the language when this was discovered!

My father was in the Royal Navy during the second world war. He hated them with a vengence. At least we sent them back from where they came from. 7 feet Rick.... that is disgusting. Didn't we have to forfeit a colony or two to pay for them?

Yeah,
and guess who bought almost all of these after the war ended and the USA needed to get rid of them, and started a shipping company? It was Aristoteles Onassis, husband of the widow of John Kennedy, Jaqueline. Does this have anything to do with Seagulls?

Good business, buy surplus from the government at rock bottom prices, and put them to work in post war trade. Clever.
