Response to MS Bloemfontein
My family arrived in South Africa in november 1948 accompanied by my aunt who returned to France in december 1948 - from Port Elisabeth to Antwerp. She travelled on the Bloemfontein of the Holland Africa Line and spent Christmas day and New year on the ship. If you are interested I can mail you a couple of the menus served on board on those dates.... Later in 1952 my grand-mother travelled on the Klipfontein which sunk early January 53 and in 1957 we all returned to France on the Bloemfontein and returned on the Oranjefontein....
just give me an e-mail if you wish to have the menus of the time
