Way out o,er the ocean ,stands a ship with funnel blue
Reminding me of golden days and shipmates that i knew
Drawn from greek mythology their wonderous names live on
I still see Agapenor on her way to Belawan
Perseus standing off ,in the great sea of Japan
Antilochus wends her way through the gulf of old Siam
Pyrrhus forging onwards making way to Singapore
Within our hearts Blue Funnel ships sail on forever more .

Sail Ocean to ocean and I will gain my promotion?

Great poem, sad that BF no longer exists.

Good one Durango, the last line being forever true to any ex-Blue Flue man.(Thumb)

Whilst Blue Flue is sadly no more, the name Ocean Transport and Trading is still in existance, owned by a Road Transport Company.
