Devonia

Sailed on her when she was the troopship Devonshire. Sailed on the last voyage she did as a troopship before being sold to B.I. Quite a few of the Bibby Line crews were sorry to see her go, myself included.
Regards,
John

My father often told me of the time he returned from the Middle East to Blighty on the Devonia. I believe it was his favourite ship

Hi guys - I was given the chance of a cruise on Devonia organised by my school in the 60's - I recall she sailed from swansea, and we stopped at Bergen and Amsterdam ... the memory is fading ... but the kiel canal came in somewhere. Bergen absolutely blew me away - the old stave church ... I went back in 2007
