Clan MacGregor (3)
In the 1970s, British and Commonwealth began to diversify into financial services as passenger shipping declined and cargo shipping evolved into container shipping.
By the mid-1980s, the business had evolved into one of the country’s largest financial services companies.
The Clan Line, now a subsidiary of British & Commonwealth, ceased trading in 1981 with the final voyage made by Clan Macgregor.
By 1986 British & Commonwealth had disposed of their last ship.
