Hello Frank and welcome to the new millenium........:)

I well recall you signing me on to the Port Alfred in the late '70s in Gib after a flight from Gatwick and on other occasions too numerous to recall.
Please be a regular on S.N. as there are many Port Line/Cunard members who will be pleased to see you here.

Very Best Regards.......


Ex Radio Officer CunardSteam

Hi Frank:

I remember the first time I had contact with yourself. Just walked into your office September 1967 and asked any jobs going to kiwi. Within ten minutes walked out with instructions to make my way to Bremerhaven to sign on the New Zealand Star on her maiden voyage.
The last time I had contact with yourself was early 1972. Rang you up and asked anything going to Kiwi. You told me to make my way to Hull, join the Adelaide Star which was going round the land to Liverpool then go and report to the Chief Officer on the Port Pirie which was going to Kiwi. (If only life was as simple as that today). Always thought you were most accomodating with guys request and one of life's Mr nice guys. I am sure you have plenty of stories to tell us, regarding char'acters that have come and gone through your office doors.

I still have your name and Port Lines telephone number written in the back of my discharge book, and occ'sionaly over the years have thought about giving it a ring.
(You never know). Regards Tommy:
