I am currently researching the history of King Line, I have exposed a few unearthed facts regarding the compan, but I require further info.
According to History King Line gradually ran down its ship owning operations in the early 80's, giving up its last ship in 1986.
According to company records they chartered ships from about 83/84 until June 1988.
Can anyone help with the names of the chartered ships, any help please?
regards

Jim, I am talking about the demise of King Line, B&C were discarding its shipping companies in the early 80's.
King Line was the last to own ships, but in its latter stages it chartered ship, that the ones that I am intrested in.
