Interesting video Phil.
I went onboard British Respect in 1975 whilst she was in Scotland (Loch Long?) so assume she was of the same design as Renown.
Such luxury you lads had onboard.

Jack.

Pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit Jack.

They were good reliable ships, though many could not stand the normal run of Gulf to NW Europe via the Cape.
