Port St John

Now will try to send my original (228 Kb) and Ron's amendment (49 Kb) - if only one is accepted, I bet it's Ron's! - Doug H

I was right, the system came back and told me my original was too large - OldBosun: If it's any help, my original picture is also on the mnnostalgia site and you might like to visit this anyway, go to www.mnnostalgia.com and then click on "Port Line" on the left column, which is a fairly new addition to that site. Kind regards, Doug H.

Is the PORT INVERCARGILL still listed as PORT INVERNESS on that Site?

I think you're suffering from a problem that Steve has just explained. See "massive hardware crash" entry earlier today. Doug H

Hi I joined the Port Saint John in Sydney in March, 1949 as a Pantry Boy in order to work my way to the UK to visit relatives in England and Wales. I did the MANZ Line trip to Montreal and back to Sydney
We had hit a hurricane in the Atlantic and it was decided to put the ship in Dry Dock to effect repairs so I left the ship for eight weeks, then rejoined as Deck Boy for the ship's return to the UK
I stayed in the UK for three months, then joined the Port Wyndham to work by as Galley Boy, then stayed on as SOS for the journey to Sydney. Ron H
