About Owners
Turner, Brightman & Co. - Zinal Steamship Co. Ltd., London

Lloyd's reference: 904/905
Brightman formed a partnership with Turner in 1878 in London. By 1900 the company owned 15 tramps of which about half were fitted with refrigerated cargo space and chartered to Houlder Bros for the River Plate meat trade. The remainder were mostly used on Mediterranean and Black Sea routes. Ten of the fleet were lost during the Great War and by 1919 the company only owned four vessels. Only two ships remained by 1939 and one was lost to marine hazard and the other to enemy action. Two standard tramps were managed for the MOWT but the company ceased trading after the war.
