Just signing on and looking forward to meeting some old shipmates.
I sailed as electrician with Palm Line 1957 to 1961
on the Elmina and Enugu Palms down the west coast of africa.
Also coasted on the Andoni, Ibadan and Katsina Palms etc.

Plenty of Palm Line lads in the crew so you may meet someone you sailed with.
Welcome aboard, find your way around the ship and enjoy the trip.

you are the first person that I have met on this site that sailed with Palm Line at the same time as myself.
I was with them from 1955 to 1957 before jouning Harrisons of Liverpool.
Did 2 trips in Gambia, 1 in Burutu and 2 in Kumasi Palm.
Perhaps we have some old shipmates in common.
Would love to hear more from you.
