David: Well remember all four DFDS ships you mention. Have a photo of FICARIA on the site and one of ATHOS in her final Guize as WING HOA. I shot JAROSLAW DABROWSKI with my original Ilford Sporti camera but it wouldn't be acceptable on the site.
I have no recollection of HINDE

Ah, memories. South bank of the pool - JAROSLAW DABROWSKI by Tower Bridge, a string of DFDS (no need for binos to read their names), and the diminutive HINDE of Amsterdam-London Line up by (the old) London Bridge.

Some of the other DFDS remembered there include DIANA, FICARIA, ATHOS, PRIMULA.
