      I would greatly appreciate your help in deciphering some information I have gathered from shipping news on the British press in 1936 about a Russian steam ship, the Neva. Based on the below, I would like to know:

      When did the ship leave Odessa?
      Was it headed for Hull?
      What does “pd. Gibraltar Feb. 18th” Mean? The ship was certainly in Seville, Spain 13th Match – 7th April. Was it on its way to Hull after Seville?
      How strange is it that under “docking orders” (Daily Mail Feb 15th) the Neva is the only vessel listed with no information on when expected or which dock / quay to load/unload?

      Thanks very much
      Gustavo

      Info from Daily Mail:

      Daily Mail, Feb. 14th 1936, shipping news. Agency List: Vessels chartered for or on passage to Hull: Ellerman´s Wilson Line Ltd. (Agency): Neva fm. Odessa I Odessa Feb. 9th

      Daily Mail, Feb. 15th. Docking Orders. Ellerman´s Wilson Line Ltd. (Agency): Neva fm. Odessa (all others ships in list have details of when due (Feb 14-29th), to load at X dock, y quay, etc.)

        pd = passed
        l = left (ie departed)

        I would suggest that the first piece means – Neva due from Odessa, sailed from Odessa Feb 9
        the second, is just the vessel was expected at Hull
        the final piece – passed Gibraltar Feb 18th

        On checking the British Newspaper Archive, several more entries appear in the

          Hull

        Daily Mail – Neva is listed as having arrived at Hull on 24 Feb, berthed at Alexandra Dock ; listed as Sailed 27 February for Ghent
