The moderator must have ruled the first word of the name i wrote as politically incorrect. The company name is Nigerian National Line. The short version is N***** Nash. He only allowed 'Nash', can you guess the word he removed? Anyway your shipmates would all be natives of Nigeria.
Yes its a nice looking ship and I like your work with the history. Good work Terry.
Sorry about the freezing UK weather. That one of the reasons I decided to come to Australia. Sitting here this morning in T shirt and shorts.
Question: why do you call yourself "music man"
I was R/O on this ship, callsign 5NPB, December 1969 to April 1970, joined in Rotterdam, followed by Hamburg, Antwerp, several West African ports, including 3 weeks in Lagos and back to Europe. Apart from the trade route, she was one of the better ships that I sailed on.
She has just come from drydock in that condition.
I worked on all those ships as a rigger for many years and they
were far less maintained by the crews as were the old Greek
tramps of the time..
And Terry we still await a reply - 'music man?'
