Hello Graham
My late Brother was on the Pretoria in (June to End August) 1958 as well,also a Winger in Tourist Class! But the Year is different so may be no!
Wonder if you may have known him at all!? Long Shot.

We used to hang out at the old Juniper Berry in Southampton a lot,and also down the Checkpoint Coffee Bar down the Stairs! LOL
All the good chicks used to hang out down there! Oh boy those were the days!

Tall Chap Dark hair always very prim and proper, most called him Ian,some just Mac
Had quite a distinctive Adams Apple ,and had a bit of a Stutter at times,not all the time though!
Name was Ian Gregory MacDonald a South African Lad!
I was also at Sea then but on other Castle Ships,as Winger as well.Also on the Round Africa Run (Intermediate Run)
