    "UGANDA The story of a very special ship" tells the story of the four lives of the SS Uganda with supplementary information about her owners and associated ships. Much of the information is anecdotal, supplied enthusiastically by the people who remember her. The SS Uganda Trust has produced a unique and affectionate study of a ship and a way of life which sadly is no more.

    The book will appeal to anybody with an interest in the SS Uganda, the B.I. company, shipbuilding on the Clyde, the UK-East Africa service, educational cruising, the Falklands War and/or life at sea on a British ship between the 1950's and 80's.
