Western Prince_Searching for Photos

I am looking for photos of the Western Prince (Prince Line). My father sailed on her in the 1950s. Although he stopped sailing after he emigrated to the United States, he has often spoke with fondness of his days at sea. I'd like to find a good photo of this ship from that era to frame for him as a Christmas gift. Anyone who has any photos or leads, please respond to this thread.

Thanks!

Duncan: I have sent you a PM as I have five pictures of the Western Prince and will be happy to send you copies.

The two photos displayed are not of the Western Prince built by Harland and Wolff in 1956 on which I sailed . She had so many problems with her main engine and auxillaries that we - the Engineers on board re-christened her "The Festering Prince"!
