I am having difficulty reading the occupation (or the ship rather) of a Mr Edwin Charles Smith (the snip taken from his marriage certificate)

I have since discovered Mr Smith as Chief Steward on the Quetta, was drowned when the said ship floundered off the Qld coast in 1890.

What I can read of the cutting is "Office of the Royal ......" (the marriage was in 1877)

I hope someone who is familiar with ships of that era can help.

ps I think the last word is "lady" - pertaining to his wife's occupation - or is it?

Hi Gibbo - I think it must be Royal Mail, even tho it doesnt look like it - I would hope the next word was "steamer" but hard to see. I thought the ship was Tangeres, but I've not heard of a ship by that name.
