T S S Antenor

Hi

and thank you for allowing me to join your group. I am looking for any information about S S Antenor ship 3/5 that sailed from Liverpool and any information on Alfred Holt and the Blue Line Shipping Company.

Thank you

Marina Holt

Hi Marina,

There are many people here who will be happy to answer your questions if you could perhaps be a little more specific, perhaps with particular attention as to relevant dates? Even an approximate period would be helpful.

Good luck!
