This photograph is from an album of photographs of PORT LINE ships, which I inherited from a niece of Captain Andy McClounan. He was master of this ship at one time during his life-long career with PORT LINE.

Flying a courtesy ensign and possibly a MANZ Line flag on the port yard; also flying NUC signal and probably using two tugs, one of which is in Union Company colours. Derricks look as if they've been used working cargo when port side alongside. Shifting berth somewhere in NZ when "dead ship"??

Taken over by the Royal Navy when she was fitting at at Sunderland when war was declared and she became the minelayer H.M.S. Port Quebec in the same squadron as the Port Napier until 1943 when the force was disbanded.
Following another refit she became H.M.S. Deersound the first aircraft repair ship of the war. It was not until after a major reconversion in 1947 that she entered service of her owners.

Yes, Dartmouth Mariner, you are correct-MANZ line service. Andy records in his log having joined in Montreal 12th Oct.1954 they spent some time on the N.Z. coast and then back to New York, Boston, St.John, Philadelphia,Baltimore, New York, Savannah and on to Sydney. No N.Z. on second leg of the voyage but back to Boston, New York and London on the 12th Oct.1955. Some trip!!!!

Suppose that I was lucky - longest trip I ever did with Port Line was 6 months. Twice sailed from UK to load in Canada and US, and once flew to join in New York, but always came back to UK without doing the full MANZ run. Could have been 10 months or 16 months depending on how many legs the ship did. Didn't matter too much when you were young and single.

She was the last of a quartet of small ships built for the "MANZ" line trade. Port Halifax,Port St John,Port Montreal and Port Quebec. The Montreal was a wartime loss, the other all serving to the 60's.
Did a triple voyage Manz run in Port Quebec lasting nearly 16 months 1962/3 and missed the coldest UK winter since 1947!
