Dear Ralph,

I can't post an image. I'm sorry. I could ask permission. These are images I went over for a book, then were sold to another. The scans are so big I could count anything - it must be a few feet all seen. For example, there are 45 vertical rivets from the highest horizontal double row to funnel top. I imagine this is known from blueprints. There are seventeen "rungs" on the two whistle platforms. The whistle appears two toned. I suppose this is all known information but I am looking at it quite up-close.
Anyway - yes! They are there on port. Almost totally obscured by another shroud or support etc. but there, thin, two of them, again close together. I can not see just where they attach (photo is not dead center line), but they are certainly attached to the first funnel - the angle of incidence precludes any other possibility. I am looking up. I hope this helps. This is not my area - I'm a 'simple Mauretania man".

Best wishes,
Eric

PS - FWIW, I can't recall what I read here about the composition of the stays or supports - the six per side - but one or three are quite kinked with visible bends.

PSS - I blew this up even larger still - those 2 port lines are connected to regular support or stay or shrouds rings - whatever it is between buff and black - those rings. Imagine same is true of starboard. Just looked - yes.
