Onderstaand verzoek is bij ons binnengekomen.
Wie weet hier iets van?

Ik zoek n.l gegevens van een schip waarmee ons gezin in 1950 van Indonesie naar nederland zijn gekomen en wel de M.V. Cheshire. nergens kan ik iets over dit schip vinden.Op deze reis is n.l mijn jongste zuster overleden en heeft ter hoogte Gibralra een zeemansgraf gekregen.
Ik zou U dankbaar zijn als U iets van dit schip zou kunnen vinden.

Her details were - length 502ft x beam 60.4ft (153m x 18.4m), one funnel, four masts and accommodation for 275-1st class passengers. Launched on 20th Apr.1927, she was used on the Liverpool - Rangoon service until she was commissioned as an Armed Merchant Cruiser at Calcutta on Oct.30th 1939. On 14th Oct.1940 she was torpedoed by the U.137 while northwest of Ireland but managed to reach Liverpool where she was repaired and resumed service after six months. She was again torpedoed, this time by the submarine U.214 on 18th Aug.1942 in the Atlantic, but again managed to reach port. In May 1943 she was refitted as a troop transport and continued in this service until returned to the Bibby Line in Oct.1948. She was overhauled and rebuilt as an emigrant ship, with accommodation for 650 passengers, and three of her masts removed, and on 9th August 1949 commenced her first Liverpool - Sydney voyage.

CHESHIRE (2) was built in 1927 by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. at Glasgow with a tonnage of 10550grt, a length of 483ft 7in, a beam of 60ft 2in and a service speed of 15.5 knots. Sister of the Shropshire she was launched on 20th April 1927 and replaced the Warwickshire (1) in the July. By 1934 her log recorded that she had steamed 447,361 miles without ever having to stop because of engine trouble. She was inbound when the Second World War broke out on 3rd September 1939 and was ordered to Calcutta where she was converted into Armed Merchant Cruiser HMS Cheshire. Armed with 6 x 6" and Anti-aircraft guns she was used on North Atlantic patrols. On 14th October 1940, when west of Ireland, she was torpedoed in her No.2 hold by U-137 and although she was taken in tow by two rescue tugs she had to be beached at Carrickfergus. While she was there a German bomb dropped close to her but caused no damage. The Liverpool Salvage Association's Ranger patched her up and she limped into Belfast before proceeding to Liverpool's Gladstone Dock where repairs took six months. On 14th March 1942, when off Cape Town, she stopped the German raider Doggerbank which, being the captured Speybank of Bank Line, identified herself as the Levenbank and was allowed to proceed. Later, on 24th July, she took Lambert's Temple Inn in tow and took her into Point Noire after she had shed her propeller. On 18th August she was torpedoed again in the North Atlantic by U-214 but managed to reach port and while she was being repaired was converted into a troopship. At 0930 on 7th June 1944 she arrived at Juno Beach, Normandy in line ahead with the Lancashire, Devonshire and Worcestershire with, between them, 10,000 troops. During 1945 she repatriated troops and on 25th September 1946 arrived at Gibraltar with the residents who had been evacuated to Northern Ireland in 1940. On 5th October 1948 she was returned to Bibby's while at Port Said and returned to Liverpool where she was refurbished to carry 650 passengers. She commenced her first sailing from Liverpool to Sydney on 9th August 1949. She returned to trooping on 5th February 1953 and carried military personnel during the Korean War. She ended her last voyage on 10 February 1957 and was laid up at Langton Dock in Liverpool. On 11th July 1957 she arrived at Newport, Monmouthshire where she was broken up by J. Cashmore.

Ik vind steeds meer.
Als U de woorden "Bibby" en "Cheshire" bij Google bijv. intikt, dan rollen er wel meer gegevens uit.
