SS Benmhor photo album, SS Armar, SS Bennevis

At some time I bought an old photo album that was put together by an 'AK Magrath'. The photos cover his time on the SS Benmhor in 1951, and it's conversion to the SS Armar in September that year. He names some of his crewmates as follows and I've attached some of the photos. I might have to send them in batches due to size.
Hope it's of some relevance for a few of you re old family members:

J Sutherland
R Mackay
Connelly
J Moir
Alec McCorkindale
Chippy WR Bain

There is then a group photo titled SS Bennevis Xmas day December 1951.
There are then photos of:
Don Goldie
Donaldson and Galloway - (I haven't copied that one)
Eric Bygate

Jonny,
If you could when you mount the pictures to photo them to put on the site , add the names along side each pic if the names are there , some we can see already but many members on this site will be very interested to see them as they will have sailed with each other over the years right up to the late 1970's. some very good pictures and thank you for rescuing it and for bringing it to this site for all of us to see and revel in memories.

Chippy Willie Bain was with Ben Line for many years and received the BEM for his services. he was pictured in the Ben Magazine in 1967 when I think he received his medal.

Apologies - I should have put names to the photos. Where there isn't any writing on the album page naming them, the photos are:
The lifebelt photo shows R Mackay and J Sutherland (looking through the lifebelt)
The 2 men standing beside each other are R Mackay and J Moir
The man beside the flag is J Moir
I think the guy wearing the jacket with hands in pockets is AK Magrath' whose album it is
The 2 photos showing a man looking to the left and a man sitting on a bench are Eric Bygate and Don Goldie respectively

Thanks

John
