Hi Ray, I am doing some family history and my Dad was Captain of the Baron Minto around this time (Capt.George Harris). He sadly died suddenly on leave in April 1964. Was he the skipper when you sailed ?
Thanks
Alastair

A belated welcome aboard, Alastair.
I'm afraid Ray Morgan hasn't signed on since 2007 so you may not get a reply.
A similair post in the shipping companies forum may get a better response.
Find your way around our ship and have a good voyage.

I saild with Scottish Ship Management in the 70,s & 80,s served on the Baron Renfrew, Napier, Maclay,and Kinnaird as well as a few of the Cape boats, many good memories,wish they were still running. If anyone is looking for imformotion on Baron Boats the Scottish Ship Management sight is a good starting place
Good luck.

Ernie Just a note to let you know I worked by on the baron renfrew at Canada dock Liverpool 1960 Myself a chief steward a mate and an engineer she was riddled with steam flies and roaches and we had to strip her clean before she was fumigated.The thing was I did want to sail on her but was given a blue star boat instead Regards Tony Allen

Ernieab 22nd March 2010 00:22

Hi Tony I was on the Renfrew in '77' I'm afraid the fumigation done no good, I remember going into the bar one night and swiched on the ghetto blaster only to see a roach running accross the radio dial (inside),it must have been a favourit haunt as they were also present inside the sterio on the Maclay.

TonyAllen 22nd March 2010 12:57

Ern I think them buggers liked the tingle they got when it was switched on Tony

Alex Nicolson 12th April 2010 22:50

Baron Elphinstone 1952/53. R/O. Rough one, Lascar crew including the Chf Stwd. A Captain Campbell from Islay. Outside of the Mate the rest were all in the 60's. 2nd Eng was actually 70. Story I was given was that they had accepted shares in lieu of wages at some point. No idea as to the truth of that.
I have a picture somewhere of the Officers in Fremantle Xmas 52 - I went ashore to eat later...
Good times though, much of it spent between Port Louis and Laurenco Marques. Sugar out, scrawny cattle back. No tourist glitz then. I loved Port Louis...wicked grin.

Anyone ever meet a Captain Henry Kitchen(Nabs)?

Mick Spear 21st October 2011 15:54

I remember an old QM with RFA in the early 90s named Tommy Legg from Glasgow. He did many trips on the Baron boats that would have been late 50s and into the 60s. Had some great stories to tell about his time with them. Does the name ring a bell Ray?

Jocko 9th November 2011 11:22

My first trip was on the Baron Kinnairds maiden voyage Nov 1958. I was junior engineer. I remember that as she hit deep sea on the way to the Panama Canal all the steam pipes were leaking due to the motion of the ship. Then we drifted for 8 hours in the Carribean with a fractured oil pipe in the main engine. Next trip was on the SS Baron Inverclyde and two trips on the Baron Jedburgh the second trip being 18 months. The Kinnaird and Jedburgh were good ships with good Doxford engines. The nickname Hungry Hogarths must have derived from the 1930s as all three ships I sailed on were great feeders. If anyone got a bad feeder it was because the Chief Steward was scrimping not the Company. Those were good times with great mates that you never got working ashore, it`s living proof when you read the posts and people still hark back 50 years to their old mates.

I was on Baron Belhavon from 1962 to 1963, any good
