hi Steve and all the members. Sailed on many ships (AB) from S'hampton and KG5 in the 50's & 60's. Mostly Shaw Savill including the 2nd last trip on the Dom. Monarch Aug.61. Went on the Kiwi coast in '69 and finished with engines, dropping anchor in Wellington, where I live, in April this year. Had 48yrs of great fun and memories of ships that had derricks, Jumbos, hatches, tarpaulins, bad feeders, but crews who knew what they were doing both at sea and ashore in the next port!
