I am trying to find out information on the Clan Ships my late Father (Ron Wilkinson aka "Tiny") served on.
So far I have found both information and Photos of two of them ( Ayrshire and Argyllshire) but can not seem to find any on the following-
Stirlingshire, Urquart, Macauly and Gemsbok, he served on these from 1958-1962
Can anyone help me with this please and also if anyone out there served with him on these Ships I would love to hear from you also.

Sincerely

Alistair

Hi Alastair ...

Perhaps you should try the newly published Clan Line fleet list & history, expensive but worth while. There is also a Safmarine history recently published, this should have details of the Gemsbok.

Any problems, please PM me, I have copies of both.

Cheers

Andy

Hi Andy,
I eventually got my copy, too late for Santa though. It's a fine tome and not unreasonable when I see I paid 12.95 in 1988 for the Norman Middlemiss "Gathering of the Clans".

PS The latest Snowbow DVD "Ships to Manchester" actually has some quite good Clan footage. It's only taken to Episode 28 to get there!!

Hi Charlie ...

Thanks for this, I've not seen any of the Snowbow films, maybe this is a good one to start with !!!
