Hi Darren
Would just like to give you a warm Welcome to this very good site!
Here you will find lots of info,good Crew and with luck also find a few old Shipmates!
So sit back,relax and just enjoy the trip!
Hope we will have you here for a long time!
A site truly worthy of the British Merchant Navy!

Here are Pics of the Ships in question,hope they will assist!

Also if you give your Dads Full name and possible DOB and Place we can look his records up for you if they still are in the Kew Archives!

If you want to find out more on his Ships etc then you can also write to the Canadian University for Crew Lits which not only give the Crews but also some nice info on the Ships Logs!)Not all)

There are also the Voyage Record Cards that are held at the Guilghall Library in London!
Hope this a; helps a bit!

Also from the Miramar Index
