My very first trip on a "Highland" was with my parents in May 1946 at the age of eight. It was on the Highland Monarch and we had one of the only four cabins in what was later First Class. The rest of the ship only had dormitories and bunk beds as she had not yet been converted back from trooping after the war. I later travelled on all the "Highlands" at diferent times until they were replaced by the "A's". I have often wondered why there are so few photos of them and the "Alcantara" and "Andes" compared to so many other liners of the same vintage, and I believe your theory TommyRob about sums it up: "someone else will surely take a photo"...what a shame!!
