Saint Ambroise - a general history

From 'The Shipbuilder Monthly', November 1919, No.111:
The holds of the vessel have been specially arranged for the carriage of casks of wine. She is fitted with the Puissesseau system of derrick gear, which includes one derrick to lift 25 tons. The winches are fitted on specially arranged platforms. The boilers are fitted with an oil-fuel installation suitable for quick conversion to either oil or coal-burning. The oil fuel is carried in the double bottom.
