Hello Ventry
I'm curious as to why you raise this question.. Some time ago I had a brief e-mail exchange with a lady named Darina Rowe. She was looking for anyone who had sailed on a Shell tanker 'Darina'. Her father had been on the ship and as she put it - 'yes she was named after the ship'.
If I recall she had originally posed the question in the British Merchant Navy web site and I suggested she also check through shipsnostalgia and helderline. I do not recall if there were any replies.
The correspondence has fallen off my e-mail records but her e-mail is still in my address book.
