Port Wellington

I only had a few years in the British Merchant Navy 1964 through 1966. Sinned out 16th December 1966 at Princes Pier South Melbourne and have just celebrated 40 years as an Australian. Fond memories of al my ships. SS Vibex, SS Horomya, MV British Grenadier, MV Benlawers (the old one) and the Port Wellington. I'd love to hear from anyone who sailed on thes eships at anytime. Regards
