Great photo Tony,
atmospheric and you can imagine the banter !

I take it that there was enough crew on her to man 5 present day container ships ??

regards,
Rick

For one of my photos Frank P enquired as to what all 53 crew members of the Iron Wyndham did. Iron Yampi was of the same class, so looks like the truth can now be told (or seen). Nice photo.

Geoff..the "Iron Boats" were one of those "you had to be there experiences" I worked harder on Australian Ships than any other Nationality...it was the runs they did and the nature of the cargoes etc and yes they were over manned...But what a great bunch of blokes to work with. KPC

Hello Muldonaich,
The gentleman standing on the hatch wearing the sarong and hat was the mate, at his feet you can just see some empty rum bottles, he is concocting a rum punch.... verry tasty it was too.
Cheers, Tony
