Good morning, sir,
Can anyone give me news about this ship (see scan) that on this stamp of Montserrat is reported as LA PLATA (1901)?
Is it the RMS LA PLATA or LA PLATA of the French Messagerie Maritime?
Thank you in advance for the help you can give me.

Dear friends,
after a long search I found news about the ship La Plata.
It was built in 1882 as MOOR. Sold to the RMSC in 1901 it was renamed LA PLATA. Until 1908 it served on the Great Britain-West Indies route.
For more information see:
