BRITISH HOPES LIMITED Manufacturers of Wire Rope, Wire, Hemp Cordage and Canvas Head Office DON CASTER j______________________________ OFFICES, WORKS AND STORES THROUGHOUT GREAT BRITAIN Off the Downs Built and owned by one of our unit companies— WT.& .Smith, of Newcastle— the Frigate “Blen­heim "was a famous eastern trader. A t the Great Exhibition of 1851 ,the “Blenheim ”and her sister ship, the “Marlborough,” were pre­sented with silk ensigns and house flags as being the finest ships in the British Merchant Marine. Many of our unit companies were well- known ropemakers before the middle of the last century, and they had that practical knowledge ol seamen's ways and needs which enabled them to provide cordage and canvas for the ships of all the seven seas. Throughout British Ropes Ltd. that sense of respon­sibility for safety and reliable service is still maintained. BLACK WALL FRIGATE “BLENHEIM ”Specially painted by Frank H. Mason, R.l.
