Hello Malim Sahib

Always a pleasure to see a photograph of a vessel of the once mighty BI.
As the song used to play:
"It's the BI for me, the BI for me...
if you're nay BI then you're nay use to me...
The Ben Line is braw and the Clan Line an aw but those boys of BI are the pride of them aw!"
Alas the men - like the ships - have all but passed into history now.
