Silvermain June ~ Oct 1978

Hi
There seems to be very few references to Silver Line on this site. I only did one trip with them which was on the Silvermain in 1978. Joined in Japan and left in Los Angeles. Would be great to hear from anyone on that trip. We did the conversion from Car carrier to Containers in Singapore.

If my memory is right I sailed with you on the "main" and as I too had just left Houlders did we not send Batch a post card?
Conversion was done in Japan and a Norweigan ship the Borgistad was being converted at the same time

Hey Duncan, what a brilliant memory you have. You are quite right about the Borgestad and i have the photo to prove it!

I have just upload some photos to the following link and wonder if you can identify any of the others.

What have you been up to since those days.

Cheers Tony
