Chief Officer, John Shaw went on to command and then become the Assistant Marine Superintendent in Durban where he was subsequently diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Fortunately this was detected and worked on in good time but with the changes in Bank Line liner services he, his wife, Gwen, and their son Mark, were re-assigned to the U.S. Gulf to superintend the fleet in the region and where they successfully settled until being offered voluntary redundancy in 1980.

John then opened a thriving independent surveyors business. He moved the family to a historic Island property until his early death in
the 1990s (I forget the actual year). He was a very fine fellow, a tremendous colleague and a good friend.

Hi Don,
Ken Keown here, just seen your thread for the crew list and it bring some great memories back. I still can't place you or for that matter some of the other crew members, but I put that down to age as I am 70 years young now!!!

I do remember most of the engineers & the chief lecky but not to many others. Perhaps if you sent me a photo it might help.


Ken Keown.

Hello Ken
Great to hear from you, I am not an avid visitor of the Ships Nosatalgia site probably once a month or thereabouts just to see whats out there. Sadly, I had some photo,s of my time on the Hollybank but somewhere along the line between changes of houses flats etc etc they must have got lost. Plenty of Photo's of my 2 years on the Inverbank the" longest and best party on this planet". I'll look through the archives and if I find any I'll most certainly onpass. I would not expect you to remember me as I was a 16 year old deck apprentice at the time but I remember you quite clearly as with Tom Russel ex Royal navy who were always very helpfull when it came to borrow engine room tools to batten down the deep tank lids . Seemed at the time to be an interminable job. Sweating the old B----ks off for the next cargo. But the fun times much more outweighed the bad times and good old Bank Line had characters which today are sadly lacking. Seamanship as we understood is lost forever now and I have only recently left is all about ticking boxes its horrendous .I could go on and on about it ,but I just cannot be bothered. All The best Feel free to respond. Donald.
