Unbeknown to me at the time, one of my neighbours turned out to be a niece of Captain Andy McClounan.
She did a bit of Shiatzou (she hits you) in her spare time and during one of these sessions she told me how she had inherited some of her uncle's possessions when he died.

He had been master of this fine ship, 2nd Sept. 1964 to 6th July 1965.
Andy kept a comprehensive log of his entire sea-going career which had been spent entirely in Port Line commencing Aug.1922.
Can I contribute anything to this thread which would be of interest?

One of the artefacts his niece gave me was this little match case.
