Hi, I have been building an Ellerman ship database for the past few years and have over 2300 pictures of Ellerman ships including Wilson, Bucknall, Papayanni, City, ACT ect. These date from the 1870's to the 1980's.
If anyone is looking for a photo of their old ship, I would be happy to e-mail you a copy free of charge. Since I have collected these from a vast variety of sources I have no idea who owns copyright to most of them so I would ask that you respect this and only use them for your own private use.
If anyone out there has any electronic copies of any Ellerman ships I would be happy to add them in to my database for everyones enjoyment.Please include the ships name and date. Thanks to Derek Hudson in Aussie for your valuable contribution.

Hello
Do you have any of the City of Canterbury (the last one) I was on her around 75
Thanks

baileybloke
3rd July 2007, 18:27
Hi, I assume that since you mention 1975 that you are referring to the 1964 Canterbury and not the 1976 vessel. Just to be safe I've included a couple of pictures of both. Kind regards, Ian

I did a coast as acting 3/0 on the Istanbul in about '76. They were desperate (obviously) and got me from the Wellington, where I was senior cadet. When the proper 3/0 turned up, I went back to the Wellington as cadet again, curses! I thought that it was my chance of early promotion! And, the junior cadet on the Wellington had done a runner, with some of my stuff as well!

baileybloke
6th July 2007, 09:02
Hi Chouan, I think it was actually my promotion to 3/O that caused the downfall of the Ellerman empire. They had a successful shipping business and then I turned up in 1971. By the time they realized and managed to get shot of me in 1976, the rot had set in. So all you ex-Ellerman guys out there can blame me for being laid off!!!!!

I have great concern regarding this item. I am fully aware that Baileybloke is doing it for the benefit of members with no gain to him, however there must be a major breach of copyright laws. He didn't take the photographs, therefore some will have been scanned from his collection of original and others downloaded from websites. If the photos were scanned then over 50% will have the copyright on the back and this should be noted, if they were taken from a publication then beware, if the photos were taken from another site then does he have there permision to use them. Once they appear on a website without a copyright then other people will use them without any idea of the original source of the photo's.

I have a collection of over 2,000 photo's that I feel unable to publish them as I know where the copyright is, yet I see many of them produced on this and other sites. I have admired Ellerman's and although I do not have 1,000s I do recognise some of these displayed, and I know who has the copyright.

This is not an attack on Baileybloke, as it is good to be able to get a photograph of a ship sailed on by a relative, it is a warning for us all, just a case of be careful of what is shown.

I have been trying for quite some time to obtain a photo of my first ship the City of Calcutta without much luck, maybe there is not that much interest in her as she was a right work house, the only picture I have is an origina water colour of her at the Mersey bar dropping the pilot. I would be most grateful if you could help in this matter,many thanks.

Hi Baltic Wal, Thanks for the 'heads -up' regarding copyright. I have to be honest and say that I really don't know what the answer is. I was under the impression that there was not a problem if the photos were not used for financial gain which was why I ask people to respect this and only use them for there own private use. These photos are freely available to all on the internet and all I have done is pool these images and sort them into some kind of order. I would be interested to hear from anyone who knows exactly where we stand. If it turns out that I can't do this then I will have to ask the SN moderators to remove this thread. Thanks again, Ian

Baltic Wal
20th July 2007, 14:10
Ian, I agree with your thoughts and apparently the rules vary from country to coutry. Even the Moderators are confused as the subject has been covered many times.

I feel that we just have to be aware then act, as you are, to the best of our understanding and ability. Just be aware that some photo are easily identifiable from their source, for example the Fielden collection.

Hello ;
I'm looking for a picture of the Ellerman line ship City of Vienna id# 1135577 launched 17 march 1914 built by Workman Clark Belfast. This ship was wrecked in 1918 outside Halifax Harbour Nova Scotia and is now a popular dive site . If you are interested I can provide you with some underwater pictures of what is now left of this vessel .
Thank you bluenoser

Hi Ian, Was it you on the City of Dundee in December 1974? If so I have some slides of that voyage. You as King Neptune's daughter complete with a necklace of beer can ring-pulls amongst them. I was 2/0 then, great trip, my last with Ellermans! Rgds John

Chouan
4th October 2007, 22:42
baileybloke, and John, I'll have had a drink with you on the Dundee then, in a general sense; I was on the Auckland as deck cadet from September '74 to Feb '75, and I, and others from the Auckland, visited the Dundee, in either Mombasa or Dar es Salaam during that time. We were on the E.African coast for most of late November and December, returning to the UK from Mombasa in January '75.

baileybloke
4th October 2007, 23:07
Hi Chouan, I reckon it was Mombassa since I never got to Dar es Salaam.
It wasn't you that left without paying for your round was it? I did a couple of trips on the 'Auckland, deck cadet from July to October 1972 and 3/O from December 1975 to February 1976 where they chucked me off in Las Palmas to spend a few weeks in hospital in intensive care. Happy days.

335x47x22-9; 189 n.h.p.; 9 knots; triple-expansion engines. The
steamship Tycho was torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine

Hi bailebloke, I'm not sure if this is of interest to you but I remember collecting callenders in the early sixties (I think) that were put out by the Ellerman line. Each month was accompanied by a painting of one of their ships and some were very evocative.

Cheers, Bill

Hi Bill, thanks for getting in touch. I notice from your profile that you are an artist which explains your interest in the calendars. I have seen some of these in the past and you are quite right, they are evocative and definitely conjure up the magic of those grand old ships. My collection of photos is simply an attempt to rekindle some of the atmosphere of a very exciting part of my life. We can all dream. All the best, Ian

Got one or two pics myself which I can send you when next on leave - the C o York (expect yopu've got loads already) and my first ship the C o Poona (although I suspect it's in Ben Line colours, as we were sold halfway through the trip and became Benarkle).
Vague memory of being 2/O on the Lichfield in 73 or 74 - must look back in my book. O/M was Davey Anderson, a nice guy from Belfast.

City of Toronto (1973 - 29 derricks!)
City of Canterbury (Fridge ship)
City of Worcester
Dilkara
City of Genoa
City of Montreal
City of St. Albans
City of Glasgow
City Of Auckland
City of Winchester (1977)
City of York

I can't decide whether it's a sad bunch or, compared to a cadet starting today, some good reasons to stay at sea for a career.

baileybloke
11th September 2008, 07:30
No problem Wassenaar. I'll PM you at the weekend. I did a Canada/India run on the Toronto as deck cadet and a couple of stints on the Auckland as cadet and third mate. Good times on the Auckland when Commodore Tommy Rigg got married to Beth. Always remember Amazing Grace blaring out of the ships speakers as we sailed from Durban. Catch you soon.

Hi baileybloke, I am really hoping you can help me out, my dad was with Ellermans way back in the day (1955-70ish) and I have heard many of his stories about life on the seas. I am hoping you may have a picture (s) of some of the ships that he has sailed on these being the C o Hereford, Ottowa and Sydney. this is a bit of a shot in the dark and I'm sorry that i don't know anything more specific about these vessels. Also if you or any of the other members can assist me in locating info / copies of ships crew lists, route logs (again i'm afriad i don't know the proper terminology for these things- forgive me) ect I would be eternally grateful.

I have just come across your thread and sorry to hear about your misfortune but just to give you confidence, I had a Heart attack 15 years ago and there definately is "Life after" as long as you think positively. Don't let the Bar Stewards wear you down.

I am also writing with the forlorn hope that you have pics of a couple of early Wilson ships. The are as follows:

Truro (2) 974grt/1922
Torpedo 418grt/1885

Hello Baileybloke,
I was a Nav Cadet with Ellermans from 1973 to 1975. I was on four ships, the Oxford, Glasgow, Canberra and Toronto. I would be most grateful if you could supply photos of any of these ships but especially the City of Toronto with her maple leaf Canadian Line funnell livery. I have only ever seen a photo of her with the black, white and buff colours.
All the best and a Merry Xmas

Hi Dave, I was a Nav Cadet on the 'Toronto from November 1972 to April 1973 on a CIP run and Third Mate very briefly on the 'Canberra in May 1974. The Toronto with her maple leaf livery is a rare sight but I will check out my database to see what I have. I've checked a couple of relevant Disposition of Sea-going Personnel and I have you showing as being on leave as at 5th August 1974 and at Glasgow College of Nautical Studies as at 7th February 1975. I'll get back to you. All the best, Ian

Chris kindly volunteered the information to my Mum and Dad that I had started smoking despite me threatening him with blue murder beforehand. It was good to know who your mates were!!!!

AlexBooth
17th December 2008, 00:50
If Chris Witt was the 1st trip Cadet and you want retribution, mail me and I'll give you all the gory details - starts in Walvis bay . . . . and ended abruptly in Durban.

By way of curiosity how did you ascertain that
I was on that voyage ?
Cheers

Thanks for having a look in your database. By the way the dates you quote are bang on. I am fascinated, the Disposition of Sea-going Personnel, is that something you have on hard copy or can it be accessed online?

For those of you who had forgotten, the Disposition of Sea-going Personnel used to appear in the middle of the company magazine, Ellermans, On Shore and Afloat. Being the person I am, I've accumulated a number of these magazines over the years and occasionally I use them for either reference or just being nosey. It listed all Ellerman ships including Papayannis, ACT and Dilkara etc., who was serving as what rank and who was on leave or study leave etc. I've never seen this information on-line unless anyone out there knows differently.

Hi, I have been building an Ellerman ship database for the past few years and have over 2300 pictures of Ellerman ships including Wilson, Bucknall, Papayanni, City, ACT ect. These date from the 1870's to the 1980's.
If anyone is looking for a photo of their old ship, I would be happy to e-mail you a copy free of charge. Since I have collected these from a vast variety of sources I have no idea who owns copyright to most of them so I would ask that you respect this and only use them for your own private use.
If anyone out there has any electronic copies of any Ellerman ships I would be happy to add them in to my database for everyones enjoyment.Please include the ships name and date. Thanks to Derek Hudson in Aussie for your valuable contribution.

Does anyone have any photos/crew details of my fathers ships City of Brisbane build April 1918 lost off Newhaven August 1918 or of the Branksome Hall believed mined off Genoa in 1917.

Ian,

I am as interested in the disposition of personell as others on here. Mainly because I can remember very few of the names of people I sailed with. With Ellermans 79-84. I would be epecially grateful for any more pictures of the Gloucester than are on the forum as it was my first ship. The only ones I have were four pictures kindly sent to me by Clive Rapley the C/O on that trip, presumably sent not too long before he joined the Derbyhire. Unfortunately these are pictures of me and not the Gloucester.
Only if you get the chance, also the Liverpool, York, Ipswich, Hartlepool and Perth.

Hi Ian

Its good to see the old crew lists from the Ellerman magazine. I have saved a couple of pages from them in my favourites. Until I moved house I had a few myself that is when they went missing. I joined Ellermans in 1969 and I was wondering if you had any covering that time 1969 to 1970. If you have I would be obliged if you could let me have a look at them

Thank you in anticipation,

Must have been about the time I was on there, Ian.
Although if you'd blinked you would have missed me.
I signed on in Hull 12th July 1974 and signed off on the Tyne on the 17th July.
Not quite my shortest on articles. That goes to 3 days Hull to London on the Bendearg.

Thanks a lot. I will look forward to what you can find. The worst loss is City of Brisbane, just at the start of her second voyage on her way to join a convoy at Plymouth. The only good bit was that all survived the sinking. An interesting point is that at the time there were 100 of a crew on board. The sub responsible never made it home but was lost with all hands later that same day, thought to have fallen foul of the mine barrage off Dover.

Dad was on City of Brisbane at the time. He had an eventful two years.On the Branksome Hall when she was damaged and the ANATOLIA when she was lost.

Glad you can help

My grandfather was an engineer officer on the City of Bristol (built 1912) sometime during WW1. He also served on another ship in the Med which was either torpedoed or mined, but was saved by running ashore.
I have one photo of the City of Bristol, which I could scan and send. Do you have others? Apparently there is a painting of the Bristol in 1913 by a French artist, but it appears to be in private hands.

The Master was a Captain F Mc Kay, Ch. Officer was from Liverpool and the 3rd was an ex China Shipping chap. My apologies for not remembering the names, although the 2nd Officer I remember was a Scotsman and the name could have been Watson.

If anyone is looking for a photo of their old ship, I would be happy to e-mail you a copy free of charge. Since I have collected these from a vast variety of sources I have no idea who owns copyright to most of them so I would ask that you respect this and only use them for your own private use.
If anyone out there has any electronic copies of any Ellerman ships I would be happy to add them in to my database for everyones enjoyment.Please include the ships name and date. Thanks to Derek Hudson in Aussie for your valuable contribution.Hi, I have been trying to get a photo of the City of Christchurch. It was the ship that took a number of the R.N.with several small craft to Dunkirk to assist in the evacuation in 1940. A memorable ship for all of us who were aboard. Tam H.

Thankyou for your prompt and very welcome answer to my request. We boarded her at night and I was not looking towards her when she left us at a buoy off Dunkirk in May 1940. So I really had no idea of her appearance. Altho. I was aboard her for three somewhat hectic and challenging days. An interesting introduction to the R.N. I had enlisted on the 29th of April that year.

Hi there, you may be able to point me in the right direction of where to get started. Basically my Great Uncle Captian Stan Conyers passed away recently, he was for years after leaving the Navy the Health and Safety Manager for the Ellermans Shipping Line. He left behind 10 first edition framed prints by various artists of the lines ships at various locations across the globe. They are very beautiful, but wasted sitting here in a box. We offered them to the company and they were not interested even though they are highly collectable. Where should i post, what thread etc? I'd love to find a home for them as i'm sure there are many members on this site that these would be invaluable to.

Many thanks,

Amy

Hi Baileybloke

My dad sailed on Ellerman Line ships in WW1, and had three taken out by Ubouts. He survived the last on, City of Corinth, sunk 12 miles SW of the Lizard. I have the only existing photo of the C0C taken by a crew member as she was sinking on May 21, 1917. I also did a painting (once I had found the correct colours) which I copied from the photo. If you would like a copy of one or both let me know and I can email them to you. I don't know what other Ellerman ships he was on, but if you have a list of those that were sunk in WW1, my sister may recognise the names, she is older than me !
Dave.

Hi,
My father in law served on the City of Dundee in ww2. He's been looking
for some photos. I would be very grateful for any if you have some.
I'm not much of a chronicler but I think the ship was called something else before.
I hope you can help.
Thanks.
