Interesting indeed !!!
They were in existence in 1984, maybe even earlier than that.

We had a lorry deliver to our mill one night some weeks back sporting the Denholm House flag and belonging to a branch of Denholm. I took a picture of it and will try to put it on here if I can remember.

Five years ago when I was doing some work at Garvel yard, Greenock. Denholm Offshore had an office there but I ignored it , not venturing in!

Hi Malky, the Denholm fish selling company have offices in Aberdeen and Ullapool and maybe other places as well and their lorries still sport the 'diamond D' house flag.

Hi LTS This one I saw, in Yorkshire was a tractor unit delivering a container. It was two in the morning so I never spoke to anyone.
If the shipping Company had continued as before I would still be there and be a lot wealthier than today!!

1. Denholm Seafoods - Perhaps
2. But would you be happier ?
3. And indeed, would we be benefiting from your cyber contributions today ?

1 Denholm Transport on the tractor unit.

2 Without doubt

3 No idea, and does anyone benifet?

Perhaps they shut down rather than keep me in employ.

1. O.K.
2. I conclude things must be rather grim for you at this time, and If I am right, then I'm sorry to hear it.
3. Well it's always good to know you're still around - and I'd love to find that blog address - which I lost - the one with those magnificent trains. A life long passion - I recall.

Shut down reason ? ----- No, No, No, - Malky - nothing like that at all. It was the times, that's all. Remember also, because of those times, to remain afloat they were having to stoop pretty low, lower than some would believe.
There are limits, after all, although it takes time to recognise them - too long in some cases, indeed many - I suspect.
Chin Up - keep smiling - that's a must do.

No , not really. Could be capts. Henderson or Cant.
Have seen the photo before - somewhere.

Some more clues:

Sailed with two of the the three mentioned but knew all three and left before Oldman 80 joined. Writes sea stories.

The ship is likely to be CRINAN or less likely CRAIGALIAN.

Malky,

That's some trick. Identification from one port and rivets. If you're right that is!

Spent ten months and twelve days with Captain Cant,don't think he looked like that ???

Well whoever it is - the photo sure makes Denholm look good.
I'll guess that it is early 1950's vintage.
It Would sure appeal to the P.R. guys.

Edit:- the ship:- it could be the "vital spark" I suppose, but I don't think so. Maybe if "Dougie were here he would tell you".
Oh, The Crinan Canal for me, I do like the wide open sea.

Crinan was the ship J&J put most deck apprentices on.

The pic looks a bit older than that though and he is smiling !!

It's not me!

No Malky it's not you, nor indeed is it I.
But it must be someone - for sure.
I think I should have "sung" - I don't like the wide open sea - but I do/did.

Well I'll be damned.
Great Photograph - so it is, and it seems to represent so much of the Denholm story.
At least I think so.
Have you got anymore treasures hidden away there somewhere. ?

Yes you have. He was 2nd Mate on the old Broompark and the Naess Sovereign.

The Title says it all - does it not. ( #24 )

Copy and Paste:-

In the early spring of the year, a young ship’s captain was heading his ship toward the port of Liverpool, England. As she neared the south coast of Ireland, he received a wireless message which was to dramatically change his life from that day right up until the day he died.

Hello Tom,

Tim is still alive and kicking. I'm still in contact with him via facebook.

He retired recently after 30 years as Master. No doubt you can contact him on FB.
