Over the years a great number of postcards were produced of nearly all of the fleets. With the usual Union-Castle eye for economy it was not uncommon for one photograph to be used for sister ships I.e Kenya, Braemar and Rhodesia Castles.

Not only was there the standard company issue card but many independent cards were also published.

Occasionally cards were produced to commemorate special events such as those on this page.
