Niger & Bamenda Palm - George Holeyman

Hello All,

I am looking for information about my father's cousin, George Holeyman. I know he was aboard the Vancouver City as an apprentice in 1944 and I have found other Google links connected to a Captain George Holeyman on the Niger Palm 1960s, and the Bamenda (spelling?) Palm in the 1980s. My father died in May this year, but, both myself and my 2 uncles are keen to discover all that we can about George, and perhaps even make contact with him??

That is perhaps too big a wish! But information about him and his career would be wonderful.

Kind regards,

Chris G

Chris, I have an old Palm Bulletin which features George as the "Palm Person" with a bit of a write-up about him, let me look it out over the weekend and I will scan it and post it here. Kind Regards, David Wilson.

Hi Chris
My last trip down the west coast with Palm Line was in 1971 on the Ikeja Palm, and George Holeyman was Master.
Dont know if that helps, but good luck in your quest.

There's nothing wrong with going nowhere slowly, but I want to go nowhere fast.
