Hello, I was an engieer with the Ben Line from 1957 to 1960. I did three trips on the Benwyvis - the first one to Christmas Island heading west to complete a round the world trip. Is there anyone out there who did it with me? I also did trips on the Benalder and Bennachie. Spent seven weeks in Sngapore on the Bennachie in 1960 refitting the engine room after a fire.

A belated welcome to the crew, Alan.
You must have found your way around by now.
Enjoy the rest of the trip.
