Notes:- As indicated elswhere on the site, Indian City (2) was the only Reardon Smith ship ever to make it with the company from drawing board to breakers yard; surely an achievement by any standards!

Those of you familiar with Newport, particulary anyone with an interest in Steam Railways, will recall that Cashmores also broke up many distinguished Steam Locamotives at their yard on the River Usk.
