    Hi Alan, I was on two of your old ships but a good few years before you. I coasted the Ixion and did two Aussie trips on the Neleus in 1955/56. Happy days.

    Regards...........Alec.

    They may have been earlier versions of the ones I sailed in!

    No Alan, same ships. IXION built 1951 scrapped 1972. NELEUS built 1953 sold 1971.
