I served in the RAF in Aden from 1961/63 and saw many ships pass through including the Canberra on her maiden voyage ,a lot of immigrant ships going to Australia also passed through and two stick out.They where four funnel jobs and I was told they were on the way back to the uk to be scrapped.Would anyone have an idea as to [img]/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]what the names of these two ships where?

Only 15 four funnel ships were ever built and the last two to be scrapped were the RMS Aquatania ,Scrapped 1950 and the SS Arundel Castle ,Scrapped 1959In a recent survey it was discovered that 3 out of 4 people make up 75% of the population
