Benline Ships

Hi everyone on this great forum,l would love to hear from anyone or family members who had dad's uncles or any other relatives who served on the Ben's circa 50,s 60,s and 70,s .My father was Chief Officer on many of them and frequently sailed on the Far East Voyages for up to sometimes 7months at a time! My mum and l often went to meet him staying on many a Ben whilst dad was docking in Liverpool or sometimes Leith !They were so happy days and the crew were mostly Chinese and such a happy group of people .Good memories from back then !
