Very rare and difficult to find, particularly the later ones.
In about 5 years or more of searching I've found one from my period at sea (66 -77) and that cost as much as a 1960 bound edition.

Saw your posting re Mariner Magazine and was wondering if RO rates of
pay for the period 1964 to 1972 were listed. If so would you give me an
idea of what they were? I need this information for a pension claim.

tks

Hi, Joe.
Can't find anything about pay rates.
When I started in 1966 it was 45 a month and around 1972 it had risen to about 100.
Afraid all the details were in my paybook that went back to Marconi when I quit.
Cheers

Can give you the rates BP were paying in early 1971 -

Less than 3 years service 1290-1758 (Pensionable salary 1050 - 1518)
3 - 5 years 1458 - 2190 (1782 - 2514)
5+ years 1602 - 2388 (2034 - 2820)
Plus 54 pa for 1st class PMG, 84 pa for Radar Maintenance, 42 pa for manufacturers course certificate.

After June 1971 all increased by around 12.5%

I've also been trying to find a source for the Mariner. Didn't realise they were worth their weight in gold. however. I don't suppose anyone could scan a few (he said cheekily). Maybe just the cartoons, or the lists of R/O's and their ships?

Hi. Monaleen, have the Mimco salary rates for apparently 1968. The document was an attachment to a mimco publication on making a career in Marine radio. Found this item on a site, www.morsecode.gen.nz. That address brings up a lot of neat stuff but not the NZ site, apparently it has been discontinued, shame, it had some neat stuff in it. Scanner is not on right now but could fax or snail mail if you would like.

Guess I had better hang on to the few copies of the Mariner I have. Also got Denholms somewhere.

Thanks, lists one of my shortest voyages! I assume that there are at least another 3 pages of names and ships so it illustrates for me how many ships and ROs Stan and Bob actually had to manage ...

Within the ROA we were given the complete set of Marconi Mariner cartoons under copyright restrictions a few years ago. At least we think it is the complete list but the dates scan a long period of years and not being a GTZM man I do not know if there was a cartoon in every issue, if there was then we have a lot missing. We have over 40 of them and have just started to publish them all in date order in our journal QSO.

Greetings,

As a matter of interest my starting pay with Marconi's in September
1968 was 70 two and sixpence a month, as a junior RO.

Hope this might help with any Pension claim.

George Hill (R.I.P.) and I found a big pile when Elettra House was being closed.... I took a few from the mid 1960s (those that showed MY movements) we left the rest for those who wanted them...

There should be a few knocking about and mine are probably in the attic (I'm a bit of a hoarder); if/when I find them I'll see about scanning them in.....
