Managed by City Line Ltd on behalf of The Ministry of War TransportAny information on who ran the Empire Peacemaker?
Understand she was a rescue ship during the war, but I did a short voyage on her in 52, when we had to be transported back to Malta, I believe she was run by the Army.
No, many of the early EMPIREs were second hand vessels purchased / acquired from wherever to fill an immediate requirement whilst new building programmes were put in place.Were all the 'Empire' ships only built in GB? Whereas Forts & Parks were from Canadian & US yards?
