How many Baltic Osprey's did UBC have? There's this one here:

I also have a photo of the same ship, but it's unscanned at the moment. If it's the Baltic Osprey to which you refer, I will happily scan it and upload here, time permitting.

Cheers

UBC only had one OSPREY, they only had three ships named after birds, Eagle Osprey and Swift. The Osprey was the odd one out of the three as she was not built for the company.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the photo, I spent a couple of years on the Osprey in the early 80's, the OP, dondoncarp, actually replaced me on there when I moved on to Baltic Eagle. I transferred because Osprey was 3 weeks on/10 day off while Eagle was 3 weeks on/3 weeks off for the same salary! work that one out. (K)

I would really appreciate it if you could upload the other pic that you have.

Regards,

Shaun

I joined the Baltic Osprey as Deck Boy in June 1981 sailing to Leningrad. I transferred to the Eagle then back to Osprey and then to the Progress.

I recall the bosun at the time was Budgie and the AB's were Steve, Bob and I think that the relief Bosun when Budgie was ashore was Alan (I think). I had my 18th birthday on board. Had some great trips ashore in Leningrad going to the Brigantine.
