How can you take ownership of a defunct magazine?
Suggest you get in touch with this site as they have many back issues:

My great uncle, George Raine, was an officer with Clan Lines. I believe his last ship was Clan Campbell and he retired in 1960. Would his retirement be noted by any chance?

Maurice,

Thank you! In 1960, when I was a boy, we returned to Canada on board the Ellerman Lines freighter City of Ottawa after a year living in India .

My father spotted Clan Campbell in Suez harbour and we took the ship's launch over to her to make inquiries, only to be told that we had missed him by minutes. Having reached his retirement date, he had gone ashore less than a half hour before to fly home to the UK. I never did meet him.

George

You will find Clan Campbell mentioned on this page is Oct 1960:

Clan Campbell was transferred to King Line at that time and scrapped shortly after. So I assume he was on this ship a bit earlier.

Hi Maurice, I have just signed up to Ships Nostalgia and whilst surfing the various forums I came across your post dated 15th Feb. 2012 in which you mentioned you had a number of Review magazines dating from Dec 1960 through to 1961.
Some years ago I created a website www.bandccrewlists.co.uk for displaying crew lists from the Review and Clansman magazines in my possession; however I have a number missing for the years 1960 and 61 which I note you have. Needless to say I would love to add the missing ones to my website, these are Dec.60, Feb.61, Arp.61, Jun.61 and Aug.61. If you are interested in helping I would need a scan of the front cover and the pages of the crew lists from each of the magazines. If you look at my website you will see a section covering miscellaneous content, you may wish to include snippets for that section. I know this is a wild shot, you may not even see this post but here is hoping.
Regards Don Stangroom

Members may be interested in From Cadet to Commodore: The End of a Sea-Going Era, by Robert Royan, which is available on Amazon. After spending two years (1944-1946) on HMS Conway, Robert became apprenticed to the Clan Line and subsequently served on Union Castle, Bowater and OCL ships. He retired in 1990.

Robert doesn't have a computer, but if any of you remember him and want to send him a message, I can do it for you.

Regards

Ian
