22nd June 1964 I travelled from Southampton aged 2 years old

Does anyone remember travelling to Kingston on 22nd June 1964 from Southampton? I was on board a ship on that day without my parents. I believe I had a nurse to look after me. I am seeking the name of that ship. All I have been told is what I have written. I also know that I arrived on 9th July 1964 barely alive...I was a very sick baby boy who needed hospital treatment. I know the journey seems long, however, that information is from my passport. Any information would be helpful as my parents are dead and there is no one to ask. I would be very appreciative if I got the name of the ship and what kind of ship it was. Thank you.

Didn't you just post this same message about two weeks ago? Are you forgetful or are you just wasting our time?

For USD 7.99 you can get a day pass to the online archives of the Kingston Daily Gleaner newspaper. Have a look here

You can then scroll through the pages of that paper for the days around 9 July 1964 to see what ships were in port and reported there.

Never regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last.
