Blue Funnel - post war years

Hello all,
My Dad used to work for the Blue Funnel line after the second war, sadly he is no longer with us to answer my questions, but I wondered if anyone could recommend a source where I could find records of which voyages he went on. His name was Cyril Collyer and he certainly travelled on some England to Australia voyages. He was an electrical engineer and ended up working for Sperry Gyroscope in Liverpool, I wonder if anyone knew him?
Thanks,
Phil
