Captain Alan McIntyre

Hi all,

Does anyone remember Alan McIntyre?


I am currently doing some research on him and his father (who was also USSCo for a time), and would love to hear from anyone with any anecdotes or information on him.

Thanks.

Neen

Smile Alan MacIntyre

I would contact Captain Chris Barradale at the Auckland maritime Collage. Chris spent over 20 years with USS I am sur he will be able to point you in the right direction

I sailed with Capt. McIntyre on 'MAHENO' 1969-71 and also on 'UNION SYDNEY1.' in 1975-76 . I have several newspaper articles regarding him which I would be happy to copy and forward . His Union Co., personnel file may be available to peruse at the Wellington City Archives .

Many thanks

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've had a chat to Wellington archives and it looks like they are going to be a great help with his company record.

Hopefully I'll be able to put some myths to bed on this larger than life character!

Regards
Neen

Neen, Captain Alan McIntyre was my Godfather. Apparently, as the story goes, he ate the log book of the Hauraki when it was captured by the Japanese in 1942. He was consiquently help as a POW in Changi. We are actually heading to 'the 'pore' next weekend where we hope to capture some of his history.

Re Alan McIntyre,

In the mid to late seventies we had two relieving third mates came to Golden Bay Cement (Wellington, NZ) at the same time - one went to the Ligar Bay, the other to the John Wilson. These two gentlemen almost wore out our radio sets, chatting away to each other almost continuously on the 8-12. These 2 were absolutely loving it, being at sea again with almost no responsibility, and having shed all their stripes upon retirement. I seem to recall one was Alan MacIntyre, the other was Peanuts Russell.
Many years later I bumped into one of these chaps at Acacia Bay boat ramp in Taupo (where he lived), but I can't remember which one it was! Probably about time my memory retired as well.

Cheers
Skilly
