Ben Line Shipmates

Hello there, I've just recently joined S-N and would really appreciate any contact with some of my old shipmates. I sailed on a coast run on the Benalder July 65, then Benattow from Oct 65 until paying off in March 68. During that last coast run the No1 Gen broke a connecting rod which split the block in two, that had to be removed and replaced while not missing a days sailing, what a trip, virtually no sleep for I don't know how long.

Would be great to hear from anyone.

Kind Regards
