The RMS Strathnaver, an ocean liner of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O), was the first ship to adopt white hulls and buff funnels, which later became P&O’s signature livery. Strathnaver was a Royal Mail Ship that worked a regular liner route between Tilbury in Essex, England and Brisbane in Queensland, Australia. Strathnaver remained in service for just over 30 years, being scrapped in 1962. Ref: Wiki.
