I was 3rd mate on Ajana, joined Halifax Nova Scotia late 1961 on MANZ run, i.e. there to Australia, back to Canada, return to Aussie, load ilmenite from Bunbury and deliver it to Hull. 21st birthday two days out of Brisbane. 23 days from Panama, saw not a thing in all that time.

Australind ( Trinders)

Tyrone 1960 2 trips. UK~ Aust, NZ.

Aussi & NZ
2 more trips on the same run.

After tickets 3/0 2/0 my final 3 trips Armadale Capt Ogilvey ( modern ship for the time) including maiden voy .

The industry moved on to box boats demise of Trinders inevitable as they had no need to raise money to continue in shipping.

No - hardly. The song at the time I was on her was 'American Pie' by Don McLean - played a lot on the Aussie Commercial stations.
