Looking for old crew of M/S Leeward Islands anda M/S Winward Islands

Hello.
I'm starting to writing a book about the history of Spanish Navy Ship " Contramaestre Casado"
It is ex Leeward Islands, ex Bajamar, ex Bonzo, ex Fortuna Referencia, ex Thanassis K .
IMO 5205473.

I' m also looking for information of his twin which was sunk un 1978 in Argelia "Natalie D" Ex Windward islands, ex Banaderos, ex Bambi, ex Mardina refeer, ex Hamdan.
IMO 5391959

I want to learn about who was the daily routine of the vessel, routers, cargo and other information.



Kind Regards.

Hi. Not much help unfortunately, but remember both Leeward (2507grt) & Windward (2510grt) Islands being regulars into Preston from the West Indies with Bananas, and general cargo outward in the 1950's.
All the very best with your book.

Thank you jonesboat.

I believe that the general cargo of both ships was ,in their begining ;fruit. As far as I Know both ships have refrigerated cargo holds.

In vesselīs data sheet explain that both vessel were strengthened for navigation in ice so I have the idea that the original target of the owners were transport fruit from South America to North Europe.

Kind Regads
