Merchant Seaman

Another box opened and another mystery. This merchant seaman wears the badge of shipping line on his hat but it is not clear enough to pin down. It is likely he died at sea as there is a section of handwritten sorrowful verse on the reverse. With inscription cut off at the edges, any further information is long gone. Click on the image and see if you can identify the shipping line.
