G'day...I am a newbie and hope this postng is in the correct arena,,,

I am looking for information re the 'Flying P line 'and in particular its ship PAMELIA. I believe that she was a 1438 ton square rigger built in 1888. Other than that I have NO information. I am interested in finding out her trade route, in particular if she would have been in Australian waters circa 1900-1906? Unfortunately, she is not as famous as many of her other P line sister ships and the info online is scant.

A second wish is to discover if the crew members of the Flying P line wore uniforms at the turn of the twentieth century?

ANY information or references are most welcommed

In re to the information posted about the PAMELIA...one more question (sorry, I always seem to have one more question!)
http://www.bruzelius.info/Nautica/Ships/Merchant/Sail/P/Pamelia(1888).html
Btwn 1904-1909 the captains of the ship are noted but not the routes...It seems that the ship's route was btwn the UK and Chile before and after this time...I had seen a refernece online which I'm pasting below with a reference that sounds like the ship was in Australia? ANY ideas how I might confirm this???

Vessel Name: PAMELIA
> Vessel ID: 599990078
> Vessel Type: Square-rigged ship
> Owner: Flying P Line
> Abstract: George Dibbern first went to sea in the square rigger PAMELIA
in 1907 and did 3 voyages in her before he jumped ship in Australia

THANKS....Nancy
