Hi there,
are there any former ex Clan Line seafarers out there ? My name is Morty Grant, 1953-1962, various clan line ships. One ship I sailed as Senr2nd engr. was the ss"AYRSHIRE" around 1958, the ship apparently run aground about 1965 and was lost. Anyone have any details? I am now retired in Houston Texas USA, visit relatives and OLD friends almost annually in Edinburgh.
Best Regards to all, Morton Grant.
