Arcadian and the Whale Cargo

Hi all,
Been a while since i have managed to get back onto this great site and I have a request for help about a voyage carried out on Arcadian and i quote the request below, many thanks

ARCADIAN Ship No 473-I am looking for information on a special delivery by the Arcadian of 4 beluga whales from Québec, Canada (May 27th , 1965) to the port of Immingham, England (June 7th, 1965). Captain Quilby and Chief engineer S. Wilson was in command of the Arcadian. I am interested in any pictures , details of this journey. Do you know if the captain or the chief engineer are still living.

Thanks a lot.

"Fairline" A line that is pleasing to the eye.
