Hi everyone, I crewed ships in the 60s with Shaw Saville, Port Line, N.Z. Shipping Co and Federal Steam as Chief cook. Now living in Southern Spain and watching the ships, (much uglier now!) passing to and from the Straits of Gib. Have many fond and enduring memories of a way of life that has now passed into history. Anyone out there who sailed on the Cornwall or Zealandic?
