I sailed with Bert Pearson on Southland Star 1988. He was Purser. A nice guy too. There is a picture somewhere on the net of Captain Sandy Kinghorn and the crew taken on funnel deck of an old Blue star ship. Bert Pearson is in the picture. It can be found in Captain Kinghorn's book "before the box boats".
Cheers

Bert Pearson Southland Star

Hi Mick.
Spoke to Bert as I work with Him 12hr. shifts. Sea Sick tablets have to be isssued to me,seriously He takes me on one of His voyages and I feel I am part of the ships company its so interesting,as a gesture I took him to watch Everton,as He hasn't been for 20 yrs. He thoroughly enjoyed it. Could you tell me what your position was on The Southland.I have passed on your post to Bert,thanks for replying best wishes Terry Murphy
