  Note: -
  An unexpected difficulty arose before Stratheden's launch, when it was found that an Aberdeen trawler already bore this name. A representative of P&O called on the trawler owner to enquire whether an arrangement could be made to change the trawler's name, as the company was anxious to use it for the new ship. The trawler owner agreed and eventually renamed his ship Earnmore, one hopes that she lived up to the new name! Her owner was invited to the launching of Stratheden, which took place on 10th June, 1937, with the ceremony performed by the Duchess of Buccleugh and Queensberry. Stratheden was handed over to P&O on the 16th December that year.
