I think that I took this at Dunedin but not sure now. Not sure of the ships but I was on one of them.

Cheers for the location correction. Napier it is. Memory plays tricks.

Nice photo Colin.

Do you or any of the other Federal men remember/know a Radio officer with the surname "Callaghan" he sailed on a few Federal ships in the early 1970's, at the time his family were living in Preston but they were originally from Liverpool.

Cheers Frank

Superb photo matey! Love the colours on the nearest ship, just as spectacular as Blue Star ships. Must have been great sailing on these.

It's the first time i've seen a pic of a Sanko line ship on this site. Used to see them everywhere in the early eighties, didn't they go bust in big style?

Cheres for this one.

It must be Essex rather than sister ship 'Otaki'. Colin, in my 'Crossed Flags' magazine of November 1970 you are in the Fleet list as 7th Eng on Essex.
Keep these NZS photos coming, great stuff!

Excellent picture of those splended days. looks like the Manapouri by the length of the name on the bow. The Essex looks in good nick, much the same as when I was with her.

This is the first photo that I have ever seen (not that there's not more out there) of a NZSCo vessel with containers on board. Interesting stow in 3 & 4 can only assume that there's no room on the wharf to hold them while the ship works cargo.

Who was accomodated in the small accomodation just aft of the funnel on the Essex. It is on the same deck as the Capt's accomodation.

I would presume that the cabin was the hospital.

Blair,
Did the coast on the Essex about 1975. I think the Sparkies used to live in that accomodation?
