Hello, I have not contributed to Clan Line before, but would be interested to learn if there are any engineers out there who went from Clan Line to Bullard King.
I joined the MN as engineer just at the time of the take over of UC etc. and as such subsidiaries as Bullard King were struggling to man their ships a few of us were sent to the Umgeni of Bullard King. Definitely a poor boy outfit in the Union Castle family, one trip was enough, and at the end of that trip she with the Umtali was sold to Elder Dempster and renamed Winneba and Calabar. Oddly enough they were were very popular with their lads on the East Africa run thereafter.
