BI voyage cards

Following a visit to the archive centre in London I have managed to source voyage cards for BI ships my father, Ralph Bannister, sailed on. The following is a list of voyage cards I have and I am willing to share them with any members that are interested. Please PM me and I will either send you the scan or type out the relevant dates you are interested in.

Madura 02/01/1947 to 21/11/1948
Rajula 02/06/1948 to 01/05/1948
Varela 14/03/1948 to 08/07/1949
Itaura 06/05/1947 to 30/12/1950

Have a look at the SN Directory here, https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/guides/Nautical_Websites
and scroll down the page to "City of London Libraries: Guildhall Library". Click on the link to Lloyd's Voyage Record Cards and there is a comprehensive guide, with contact information.

The voyage cards are basically where and when a ship was, what port they were in on a date. The ones I have listed for example outline when a ship arrives in a port and departs from there, the ships listed were mostly in India and Australia

I am sorry I can't tell you that, I went to the city of london archive centre, but contacted them before I went with a list of ships and dates I wanted voyage records for and they had them for me when I went there, I then photocopied them. there is a cost for the photocopier, 20p or 10p, so if you have a lot to do take a pile of change. I am not sure if they are available online.

I tried for 1975 onwards and was shown endless reams of microfice(?), and left to go through old Lloyds lists page by page. Didn't last long and went home!!
