BTC Commission and early(ish) Australia/NZ vessels

Hi
Am a new "poster / member" so not sure how this all works. Recently came across a copy of a Register of Ships grouped under British Transport Commission. Covers ships built in the twenties up to mid to late fifties. Includes dimensions, power, builders etc etc and in some cases vessel construction / acquisition prices. If members are interested can post details - unfortunatley no plans or photos in this Register but nonetheless interesting. Also have quite reasonable quantity of information about older USSCO and Huddart Parker etc vessels - all Australia / NZ operation up to late fifties - some into sixties seventies as the companies evolved / devolved.

Where possible am more than happy to share the information where members might ask pertinent questions,
Regards

Hello flat500 and welcome to the site. You will find a lot of requests for ships details here so your register will probably be well used.

I hope you enjoy the site.
