I have recently rediscovered 12, 35mm transparencies which I was given by chief engineer Jim Breslin who was my next door neighbour at the time.
The pictures show some ships and ship's staff. Dated august 1967
I cannot get a decent copy of them to post on the site so if anyone is interested in them please send me a PM with an address and I will be happy to mail them to you.

From what I remember, Jim Breslin spent most of his time on the P and H Class steamers. he was happy on Motor ships! I ssume the transparencies will from those days. It would be nice to see them posted on here,as my father and uncles were also on those ships around that time

Have had the slides scanned and processed and since they are almost unknown have put here for comment.
The Bluey looks like a H or P class and the subjects engineering department.

In addition to above it looks like with Suez closed in 1967 a round the Cape voyage docking somewhere ahead of a Union Castle ship and a Safmarine ship also in port..
