Hi all, I am posting this photo of the engineers of the Bennachie taken on the 4th July 1960 at Keppel Dockyard Singapore. The ship had had a fire which almost gutted the engine room this was 2nd July 1960, which resulted in a temporary abandon ship for almost 7 hours, that’s why our boiler suits were not in pristine condition 😂
I trust some of you will recognise some of the faces and names.
