The names of the ships from trade involved in the Falklands operation are well documented. However, as someone interested in
merchant ships I was wondering if

a) anyone has records of STUFT in operations post WW2 from Korea through Suez to the Gulf Wars

b) the Falklands STUFT seemed to be well prepared in Cold War plans. Were all British merchant ships kept on some kind of register by the
MOD so that for example in a pre-Cold War mobilisation the Cunard, P and O, Union Castle lines etc would have provided ships to help bring
personnel and cargo for NATO
