Bulimba

She was the second of 5 built 1959-1961 at Harland and Wolff/s Glasgow yard for BI.Sisters were BANKURA,BAMORA,BOMBALA,BARPETA not neccesarily in that order.
I drew this at school invoking comment-not particularly favourable I/m afraid!Art class was for art,not drawings of ships!

Bulimba

Hi, wonder if you have any contact information to obtain plans for the vessel. We would like to construct a scale model of the vessel.

A very commendable drawing of a fine ship. I was second mate on Bamora.

Fairfield,

According to Laxon & Perry's leet definitive fleet history, BULIMBA was actually the first of the class to be completed (26.03.1959) followed in order by BANKURA, BARPETA, BAMORA and BOMBALA

Regards

Tom
