H.T. Navasa 1912

Hi Everyone

I am doing some research for my father who is 94 this year.

During his service in the Army he travelled on two ships, the Cap Tourane which he sailed out on, we have found information on her.

He sailed home on the H.T Navasa from Mingladon in November 1947 via the suez canal and Gibralter, reaching Southapton in early December. We know she was laid up in river blackwater and scraped at Burrow Furness in 1948 but are unable to find a photograph of her.

Can anyone suggest and websites we could find some please
