G'Day Barry,
I did two trips on this ship as a Writer (Nov. 63 and Feb.64) when it was operated by Elder Dempster Lines, Ltd and originally belonged to the British and Burmese Steam Navigation Coy. aka PADDY HENDERSON LINE.I note that your photo depicts the Kohima with ED's livery. Bow crest and buff funnel quite noticable.Never knew she was taken over by Guinea Gulf Line. Remember seeing some of their ships and NNL v/ls down West Africa especially Sapele, right up the Niger R.
ciao,and have a great 2013
