METAL MODEL OF P&O LINE PASSENGER SHIP 'RMS VICEROY OF INDIA' BUILT BY ALEXANDER STEPHENS & CO 1928, 19 648 TON, 186 METRES, 19 KNOTS, 678 PASSENGERS. 

Viceroy of India was Britain's first large turbo-electric passenger ship.At about the same time as she was built, P&O also had RMS Mooltan's performance increased by the addition of BT-H turbo generators and propulsion motors to supplement her quadruple-expansion engines.

P&Os first experiences of turbo-electric propulsion led the company to specify the same form of transmission for a pair of liners[10] that it ordered in 1930: RMS Strathnaver (completed in 1931) and RMS Strathaird (completed in 1932). Each "Strath" was only about 2,600 GRT bigger than Viceroy of India but they produced about 77% more power, which made them about 3 knots (5.6 km/h) faster than Viceroy of India.

iceroy of India was handed over to P&O on 7 March 1929 and made her maiden voyage on the Indian mail route. In September 1932 when she set a new record time between London and Bombay of 17 days, 1 hour and 42 minutes.

Viceroy of India was also suited for leisure cruises, which she made every year until the outbreak of the Second World War. In February 1939 she cruised to the South Atlantic, where she became the first P&O liner to visit the island of Tristan da Cunha.

On 23 November 1929 Viceroy of India rescued 25 crew members from the Italian cargo steamer Maria Luisa which sank in the eastern Mediterranean off the coast of Egypt.

In 1930 Viceroy of India twice assisted the Greek cargo steamer Theodoros Bulgaris in the Bay of Biscay. That September she stood by when Theodoros Bulgaris' cargo of grain shifted in storms and the Greek merchantman's crew were transferred to another vessel. On 31 December 1930 Theodoros Bulgararis sank and Viceroy of India rescued all of the crew.

On 5 September 1935 the Cunard White Star liner Doric and the Chargeurs Réunis cargo ship Formigny collided off Cape FinisterreDoric stayed afloat but her 736 passengers were transferred to other ships as a precaution. 241 of them were transferred to Viceroy of India.

On 11 August 1940 the Cunard White Star liner Ceramic and the Bank Line cargo liner Testbank collided off Cape TownCeramic stayed afloat but her 279 passengers were transferred to Viceroy of India for safety.

In 1942 Viceroy of India sailed in Convoy KMF-1A carrying Allied troops from Britain to invade French North Africa in Operation Torch. Early on 11 November 1942 she was returning empty from Algiers bound for Gibraltar. At 0524 hrs she was about 34 miles (55 km) northwest of Oran when German submarine U-407 fired a spread of four torpedoes at her. Two hit the ship, killing four crew members. At 0531 hrs U-407 fired a stern-tube torpedo at her but missed.[5] The B-class destroyer HMS Boadicea took Viceroy of India in tow but she sank and Boadicea rescued all 432 surviving crew and 22 passengers.

THE MODEL IS DETAILED AND WAS MADE BY GERMAN MODEL MAKERS MERCATOR, MEASURES 15 CM LONG, USED MODEL.
