Sam I was in this ship of Tatems sometime about 1952 we were tramping all around the place , Sadly the trip after I left her she foundered in the far east somewhere, there was no loss of life though, there is a pic going the rounds somewhere If I come across it I will post it , the Captain was GG Price

I belive the company ceased shipping in the late 60's,but continued in other things,I have some ties with the family,as they bought our lifeboat in 1988 which is a tyne class, and she was called the George gibson,we take the family out on the boat a couple of times a year.George Gibsons grandson bill is now our station president,George gibsons son David still lives in the family house at Exning.

Nearly all of tatems ships were named after villages in northdevon,ie Appledore Bideford,monkleigh etc,as the tatems were born in appledore along with the Reardon smiths

Tatem's had a subsidiary known as Maritime Shipping & Trading Company. In 1942 this company was acquired by 'London Greeks' Michalinos & Co Ltd along with its one ship, the "Appledore". Michalinos kept the company name and also adopted the 'dore' suffix for its fleet. The "Appledore" referred to by Wakaman was built for them in 1953 by William Gray and was sold in 1964 becoming the "Persian Roxana". I will post a photo of her under Tramp Steamers.

There is a good account of life on Tatem ships in the book"Upon their lawful occasions". By Vernon G. Upton.pub.Matador.2004.Although not a Tatem history it gives a good insight into tramp life in the 30s and 40s and the war at sea.Highly r
ecommended for those interested in such matters.Pierhead Jumper.

In a small book about the Sunderland fire brigade it states that the Tatems "Landwade" was involved in a fire whilst at Greenwells dry dock, with the midships accommodation and bridge affected, the date was Sat 15th April 1967 ,they was 4 fatalities the Captain and his wife and the 3rd Mate and wife. It also said that the ship was due to sail on Monday 17th April and it would have been the Captains last trip before retirement.

I was on her in 1953 from April 9th to September11,old GG.Price was capt.He was a wacky old guy,with his three or four stinky cats running around all over the place.We used to steer from the monkey island as we could smoke up there.The ships bond was his,and we could get liquor any time we wanted it,BUT don't ever miss a watch or fail to turn to because you were drunk or hung over. The food wasn't too bad I've had lots worse.

I was in her in '54 as AB
G G Price was not the usual type you'd expect as a Skipper I agree, but he had a fetish about keeping the holds spotless, there was always bags of overtime when we were light ship painting the holds with silverine, they were like silver palaces, he was very liberal with the bond though, He'd give you a bottle of vermouth any time of the day, but you could get all the Gin and brandy you wanted if you could afford it after you finished your watch, did you hear about the apprentice photographing him thro the galley skylight pinching the food from the pots and pans,another trait was taking the vegetables off the second mates plate in the saloon saying you don't look like you want them , what a man! incidently I did make a comment on this ship earlier in this thread.
