Have a good trip.

Welcome to the site Mr D.
Sailed on Thirlby in 1960 when she was brand new,beautiful ship then,my first long trip,nine months on the east coast North and South America and Carribean,enjoyed every minute.
I understand she aquired a rather bad rep in her later life,pity, she was a fine ship when I knew her.

The Thrilby was in Curling just outside of Cornerbrook Newfoundland in early 1964 I think. Most of the crew got locked up by the RCMP until just before sailing time. We berthed in Cornerbrook a day after she had berthed in Curling, the locals told us that as well as fighting among themselves they would attack any male under about 40 if they were in the vicinity of them.
The locals were most relieved when she sailed as at that time Cornerbrook was a very quiet community and never experienced anything like that in the normal course of things. The name Thrilby has been ingrained in my memory ever since.

Hi

Just found this site and thought I'd join and share some memories. The Stonepool was my first ship after leaving Gravesend College. I Joined on the 2/7/79 and spent 6 months on the old girl. We done a full crew change in Hamburg (Crew From Newcastle), and sailed to Kamsa in W/Africa. When we paid off in Brighams dry dock south shields, I was lifted off by crane and rushed to to Ingham Infirmary after nearly pulling me arm out the socket. Was as right as rain two weeks later. Get in touch if you were on board then.
