Calling all Ben Line shipmates

I joined Ben Line in 1962 as a junior engineer and progressed from 8th. to 3rd. engineer before leaving in 1969. Wonderful years with a great company sailing on eight of the old steamers so loved by many. Hoping to hear from other old timers still standing.

Thanks for your background Peter. Hopefully you will bump into some of your old Ben Line shipmates on SH.
