I'll take the same money for each time it made me jump out of my skin while trying to get some kip.
Very nostalgic film, thanks for that, jaigee.

Cheers
Kris

Missed out on Rio twice, Jeff.
It wasn't on the itinerary on my trips on Raphael.
Nice to see Cyril in his safety "Jesus" sandals.
I'll have to tell him he's a film star if I see him. He lives about 10 miles away.
Cheers
Kris

Oh Yeah Cyril in his sandals - must admit the trip up the Sugar Loaf brought back memories of my 1st trip, on the Rubens, we called into Rio and we went up the Sugar Loaf and also swan and sunbathed on the Copacabana beach. I could not believe what I was doing and getting paid to do it. Great days.

Chris.

Well done with the film Jaigee, just the sight of that blue white and black
funnel takes you back over 40 years.
I used to have a cine camera in those days, and like an idiot, never bothered
taking it anywhere.
Never got to Rio, always BA, Santos, Monte, El Salvador ,( the usual run ).
I did put photo's in the gallery of both Raphael and Ronsard .
What good ships they both were.

Did anyone notice the shot of the Raphael in the 'Time Shift' programme 'The Men Who Built The Liners' last night?

She was moored in the background on a short clip of which appeared to be a Harrison boat being towed across a basin. I recognised her immediately and tracked back and paused just to make sure.

I have no idea where the location was though but as the programme was virtually all about the Clyde I would assume it was somewhere there. Or could have been the fitting-out basin at Bartrams, as she looked pristine. Perhaps someone can can locate by identifying the tug in the shot?

The programme is available to watch or download here:

The clip is at 28:38 mins:secs.

Shame you can't remember the 5th engrs. name, I was wondering if he was a junior
on the previous trip, there was one called Garry from Rochdale, he wore glasses,
I don't seem to recognise his face, but I'll bet his mother wouldn't with that haircut.

John.

Nearly all are from a trip on the Raphael in early 1968, plus there are a few from a trip on the Debrett in 1959, although these are not that interesting.

I look foward to your comments and corrections!

Hi Jeff, Just discovered this web site and was astounded to see myself in a bosun's chair applying white lead and tallow to the mast stays/shrouds. My name is Tony Stuart, I was a 19 year old EDH at the time and had no idea we were being filmed (for posterity)

We left Liverpool on the 19/2/68 first stop El Ferrel then La Corruna in Northern Spain. Next stop Las Palmas for Bunkers then non stop to Recife. I remember we went down as far as Porto Alegre then back up the coast again.(Ports;- Rio Grande Do Sul, San Francisco Do Sul, Maceo, Santos, Rio and maybe others. Dublin was on the return leg of the voyage for a day or two, then paid off in Liverpool 21/5/68. Master was W. Williams. I dont remember any other names but recognise the Donkeyman poseur as though it were yesterday.
Best wishes James A Stuart (Tony)

Amazing what can happen, there you are browsing the internet and suddenly there is some film of you forty odd years ago!
I had just got the camera and cine and couldn't snapping and filming!
Certainly was a good run and time and a happy ship to boot. As many others say on this site, I can't believe they paid us for going! Not that we had much left after all those ports.
I certainly remember you Tony, and most of the young deck crowd as well, also remember the Donkeyman clearly, he was a larger than life Scouser.
I bet you are boring everybody to death now showing them the film and photographs!

Jeff
P.S. Have sent you a PM.
