Hi every one,

I have been set a quest by my girlfriend and her family. They sailed on the T.S.S Kampala in 1967-1968 when they where 6 years old. This ship played a larage part of there lifes. They sailed from Bombay to the Seychelles.

I am looking for pictures, ship plans, hoilday snaps, any memoeries of the ship, travel agent files, passenger lists, pictures of the ship being scrapped, really any information would help me.

Did the Kampala have a name change?

Does any one no why there are not many pictures of the Kampala with a white hull?

Many thanks
Scott Wilson.

I/m sure there will be something on the various BI sites and the BI section on the Merchant Navy Officers site www.merchantnavyofficers.com
