BI Ships 1948-1949

My Dad - Ralph Bannister- sailed on the following BI ships between 1948 & 49:
SS MADURA; SS RAJULA; SS VARLEA & SS ITAURA, does anybody have any info. or photo's of these ships. I am trying to build up a photographic history of my dads ships and the ships I was on. He sailed with Clan Line 1949 - 1955 (somebody was born that year and he left the sea!!)
Any info would be appreciated or even links to other sites.

Thanks

Brian Bannister

Hi Brian,

A good source of info is the "BI" book by W A Laxon & F W Perry published by the World Ship Society (ISBN O 905617 65 7)
Plenty of info and some pic's.

Hello there,
Like yourself I am trying to locate some of my fathers shipmates whilst he was with clan line.
Did your father ever serve on the following Clan Ships-
Argyllshire, Ayrshire and if he did did he recall my father Ron Wilkinson or as he was known to his mates "Tiny".
