Hello to all.

Hi from British Columbia Canada! My first ship was the Anchor Line's Eucadia on a whisky run from Glasgow to New York 1954, Nov and I was 2nd Radio Officer. I did 2 trips to the States then joined the Blue funnel Line and coasted for a bit then went to the Far East on the Eurybates. I sailed on quite a few B/F vessels then came to Canada 1956 on the Carinthia and worked the coastal CPR vessels to Alaska.
Here is a pic of the Eurybates.

Smile Welcome

Eucadi7a,

A warm welcome to the site and I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
Good luck!

Welcome to the site. We have quite a lot of members in Canada but I think you are the first I have seen from BC - they are mostly in the Great Lakes/Ontario area.

I am sure you will find a lot to interest you here.

Regards,

Brian

Hi Eucadia,
You may already have these photos but if not enjoy, I did a short coastal voyage on her late 70's
Cheers

Anchor Line

I sailed with Anchor Line late 70's early 80'S on both the Eucadia and Egidia, then went on to join Unicorn Lines for a couple of years, now living in JHB.

There are quite a few Canuck members out on the West Coast (B.C.) including yours truly, on Vancouver Island. Welcome to the site and have fun.
