Scottish Ship Management Limited was formed in 1968 as a result of the merger of the shipping staff of H. Hogarth & Sons and Lyle Shipping Co. Unfortunately, in 1986, as part of the demise of the British Merchant Navy, the company ceased to exist.
The purpose of the site is to provide a bit of background to the history of SSM and to serve as an archive of material. It is hoped that former officers and crew of the company will come across the site and make contact. Any information and photographs would be gratefully received.
