Hi Erimus - Is there any information you might have on the Captain Storm you mention. It would most likely be my Grandfather Raymond Storm or possibly his brother Richard Storm.

Nice man, seem to remember he was Richard.

There were several Whitby/Runswick Masters in those days ( 50's/60's) and of course the ships were named after streets in Whitby. We had Baxtergate & Waynegate and probably Redgate when I started in the late 50's..all being used as 'ore carriers'.

Hi - Different subject but do you happen to know anything of Dennis Pritchard / Pritchett. He was 2/E on the Saltersgate when I joined in September 1977 in Lagos (Just after she had been renamed from Greenpark)? He lived in Bridlington and someone told me he had been mayor at some point. (Frank Stamps was the C/O who must have long since passed I would guess).

Andy.

Do you have any memories of that time. Also do you have links with Whitby? My grandmother was a Chapman.

In those days they often used to lighten them at Tyne Tees or Dents before they went up to Gjers Ayresome Wharf.

The World Ship Society published an illustrated A5 cardbacked book on Turnbull Scott some years back but unlikely still in print

I think the author was Harold Appleyard, but not 100% certain

SOUTHGATE.jpg

Hi everyone,

I was only with the company a short while but I have great memories from some of my trips. I joined as a Deck Cadet in 1975 and my first trip was on the Hyde Park, we mainly did trips up to the Baltic which was amazing in the ice! My second trip was on the Southgate which had just been launched, I joined in Immingham and we did an amazing run to Hong Kong returning to the UK via Singapore, South Africa and Liberia. It was 6 months and I really enjoyed it. Met some very cool people in my time but sadly struggling to remember names! Joined with two other cadets: Gary and David? Met a great 3rd mate on the Hyde Park who was really into hi music and I still follow many of the bands he introduced me to. Two very cool engineering officers on the Southgate who were very funny. Had an awful Captain at one point Woolias I think he was called!
