Runic and other Shaw Savill 'Big Ics'

Is there by chance anyone out there who has a tale to tell about sailing aboard either or any of the following: Corinthic, Ceramic, Gothic, Athenic, Runic, Suevic or Persic? I've heard that the 'sparky' who was in Runic when she hit Middleton reef in 1961, may have later published exchanges of messages at the time. However any or all contributions, anecdotes/experiences could be of assistance to a couple of authors currently writing a book about Shaw Savills only post-war steamships.
