Description

There are so many ships to be seen in this specially extended production, as we tell the story of the final days of the once great British Merchant Navy and Shipping Industry.

We follow the voyages of ships belonging to many of the once great Shipping Companies, as they make their way home,many for the very last time, many having been away for as long as two years on voyages that have taken them all around the world, from the frozen ports of North America in mid-winter to the Panama Canal and the warm waters of the Southern Oceans, calling at New Zealand and Australia before turning North for the Far East, Africa, Aden, Suez, and the Mediterranean.
