I was born and raised near the UK port of Southampton in 1965. Within ear shot of Southampton Waters and regualr trips into Southampton, many old ships were like family. The Union Castle ships are still remembered and Canberra was probably my favourite.

Hi there,welcome to this rapidly expanding site-nice to see you on board as it were.Although I/m about 600miles further north I used to visit Southampton regularly in the 60s and well remember all the famous liners which everyone took for granted.
After an absence of about 12 years,I was back briefly in 2000 to join QE2 for a short cruise and was amazed by the changes.Different ships now but still a major port.
Look forward to seeing any photos you have. :hey:
