City of Ripon arrived Kaohsiung for scrapping 20.April.1979 as Benvannoch.
She was origionally part of the Ellerman "City" line fleet within the Ellerman group. Glasgow registered.
Your queried what ports she may have traded to. From memory she would has been on either UK/Continent to Far East Aden,Penang,Port Swettenham, Singapore, Minila, Hong Kong Tiawan and Japan. Also Uk to Pakistan/India - all ports starting at Karachi Bavnagar,Bedi Bunder, Bombay, Cochin,Colombo,Madras,Calcutta etc. Also UK to South Africa - Walvis Bay, Lobito,Cape Town, East London, Port Elizabeth, Durban Biera etc. Those would have been her main routes however no doubt she had voyages throughout Ellermans network ie UK to Persian Gulf, East Africa and my have touched on NZ/Australia on occassions.
My discharge book shows the City of Ripon handed over to Ben Line on 10th May 1978 in Hong Kong.
As extra to the above post I was on the Ripon in Montreal Aug 77 for Toronto and the Great Lakes to South Africa If I remember correctly we had the Canadian City Line funnel for the voyage, red with a white diamond and red maple leaf. (I should remember it well because Elvis Presley died on the 16th August while we were alongside).
