Edinburgh Castle (3) was launched on 16th October 1947. She was built by Harland and Wolff to replace the Warwick Castle which was sunk in the war.
In June 1965 she had a major refit which gave a new mast layout.
She made her final departure from Capetown on 27th May 1976 when she was sold for breaking up.
