Terry... Welcome to Ships Nostalgia and to our Tusitala thread. You're sure to have a great time here.
I have written about part of my first trip - it was great recalling some of the good things that happened, and some not so good! However, its great to have those memories.
It would give a lot of readers here some pleasure recalling their own first trips if you felt up to giving us a run-down of your time - good or bad - aboard Quebec as a first-tripper. Cheers!

SS Port Quebec

SS Port Quebec was under construction for the Port Line when she was requisitioned by the Ministry of War Transport for completion as the auxiliary minelayer HMS Port Quebec. She joined the Royal Navy 1st Minelaying Squadron based at Kyle of Lochalsh (port ZA) laying mines for the World War II Northern Barrage.[1] After minelaying was completed in October 1943, she was retained for conversion to a repair ship and renamed HMS Deer Sound (F99) in 1944. She was then returned to the Port Line in 1947.[2]
1947 Port Quebec, Port Line, 1968 scrapped.

Great crew, great trip!
Some they do, and some they don't, and with some you just can't tell.
Some they will, and some they won't, and with some it's just as well!

Hello, I know these posts are from a while ago now, however I am currently typing up the diary of my grandad Glyn Hopwood that he kept whilst on HMS Deer sound during WW2. I would be happy to look out for any names or discuss dates. At the moment I am up to 1945 where he is in Sydney! I have photo's of the crew too. Please feel free to get in touch.

Hi Shaun, Paid off the Port Hobart after the Port Wellington and joined the Lazy Q or Port Quebec 27th April 1967 KG5 . aft accom remember carrying the plate carrier for meals from galley aft of main Housing. The day we all signed on someone stole the lunch which was sitting by galley window ,roast chickens I think but dockers had a great lunch. Paid off in Auckland later joined the Sussex back to KG5 .great days only 20 year old. hope you are still enjoying life.
