Would you have a picture of the Manchester Merchant Paul?

I saw a post elsewhere from someone who is looking for this image. He has his relative's diary from the ship's voyages. I wondered if he might share the diary on this site.

Thank you
David

Paul,

Yes please!

The 2nd Battalion sailed on the Tintagel Castle on 16th December 1899, and arrived at the Cape on 8th January 1900. Not sure on which ship they returned. Will have a look.

Kind regards
David
