Welcome to the Benjidog B.I. Resources Website

This website has been constructed as a new home for various resources that were originally published on the excellent MerchantNavyOfficers.com website which ceased operation in August 2014 following the sad loss of its creator Fred Waddington. I have re-published as much of the content as possible as part of the Benjidog Historical Research Resources website with the agreement of Fred Waddington's widow Bobbie to ensure that it is not lost.

Unfortunately the contact details of the original contributors to the old site are not available to me so I have been unable to contact them. I hope that they will be pleased that their contributions have been preserved. If any contributor to Merchantnavyofficers.com objects to specific material being re-published, my contact details are at the foot of this page.

  • Resources will take you a list of the content.
  • About will take you to lists of acknowledgements and external resources referenced in constructing the site.
  • Site Search will take you to tools to search any of the Benjidog Historical Research Resources for whatever you are interested in.
  • Copyright will take you to information about using material from this website - Many of the photos are privately owned and are reproduced here by permission of the owners so please respect this.

The B.I. Resources website went online in November 2016 with the first set of resources - more will be added over the coming months.
