This could be the Lancastrian Prince as we sailed from here to South America in 1967

Gosh is it all so long ago!

JP - see my gallery for TUDOR PRINCE, also photo of 2 officers on Tudor Prince. My uncle John 'Roy' Perkins was her Chief Mate. Did you know him, and do you recogise the two officers? She was an earlier ship than the one in 'Prince Line at the Tower'. My pics were taken at Famagusta in 1955.

I am sure we went up to Butlers Wharf on the Maltese Prince in 1962 when there was a potato shortage-potatoes were stacked everywhere on board. However I would go along with the view that it could be the Lancastrian. There is a grand Furness Bermuda Line reunion 15th/16th May 2009 in Surrey as most Furness Bermuda had also served in Prince Line email me for info ian.denton@mypostoffice.co.uk

Looks like the Lanky to me docked at Butlers wharf then round to St Kathrines dock deep sea from there. Used to love Farmagusta & I now live in Larnaca but won't go over as it is so sad. I was on the Lanky from October 66 thru about March 67 as 1st galley boy then ships peggy in the pantry lovely ship.

I was cadet on the "Black Prince" in 1962 and we always went up above Tower bridge after a call at West India docks, it hard to tell as the four hatchers all looked the same except for the "Lanc" as she was the only one with steel hatches.
