    With so many Victory experts aboard the good ship SNR I had hoped to have had a response to my query posted last May. My guess is that her original figurehead was painted white because of its size and the fact that the after part was close to the waste outlet from the ship’s heads and therefore would have required frequent cleaning and repainting. Any suggestions?
