Vintage Port

Just a quick note to remind all of those ex-Port Line men (and those of confused gender) that there is a website for all ex-Port Line employees that were with Port Line before 1970. The website is Vintage Port, membership is free and you get to see quite a few stories from ex-Porties. There is also a list of crews on all of the Company ships, invaluable if you want to find out ex crew names.

Closed Shop.

I joined Vintage Port and found that if you are not a master mariner or an engineer, you have no say in this website. I served 7 happy years with Port Line in the catering dept starting a a galley boy and then finishing off my career at sea as Food and Beverage Officer with Stena Line. I would love to get in touch with the Port Line lads, I even served 2 turns of duty in the Suez conflict on the Port Invercargill....Take care Terry.

Sparkie. Thanks for the reply.
Sad i cannot share my memories as although i never sailed on Port boats i worked on every ship as a rigger that came into the Royals and Tilbury from mid 60`s until their demise.(including Brocklebank charters/ownership)
Cheers John.
