hi all names Tony been going away to sea since 1980 ( how time flys ) anyways one of the main reasons for coming on here was that i have recently come into possession of my great grandfathers discharge book ( a continuation actually ) anyway i would be grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction for information regarding some of his ships BERENGARIA running to new york in 1921 and the ARAKAKA running to demerara also 1921, the CANADA running to montreal in 1922 and finally the ADRIATIC running to new york in 1924 ( he seemed to love new york by the way, any info would be much appreciated , he was a fireman by the way,
