My Dad - Ralph Bannister- sailed on the following BI ships between 1948 & 49:
SS MADURA; SS RAJULA; SS VARLEA & SS ITAURA, does anybody have any info. or photo's of these ships. I am trying to build up a photographic history of my dads ships and the ships I was on. He sailed with Clan Line 1949 - 1955 (somebody was born that year and he left the sea!!)
Any info would be appreciated or even links to other sites.

Thanks

Brian Bannister

Hi Brian,

A good source of info is the "BI" book by W A Laxon & F W Perry published by the World Ship Society (ISBN O 905617 65 7)
Plenty of info and some pic's.

Hello there,
Like yourself I am trying to locate some of my fathers shipmates whilst he was with clan line.
Did your father ever serve on the following Clan Ships-
Argyllshire, Ayrshire and if he did did he recall my father Ron Wilkinson or as he was known to his mates "Tiny".

In reply to alistair, my dad only siled on Clan vessels and BI ships, he never sailed on any of the shires. Sorry
