Hi Trev,
I've been with Blue Star since 1967. I'm sure I've sailed with you but cannot place the when and where. The company is German owned now but still called Blue Star although there are very few of us left who were in the original company.
Anyway, safe sailing.

Blue Star Line was disposed of to P&O Nedlloyd in 1998 & ceased to exist. A bit of 'History' here

G'day Peter. I sailed on the Newcastle Star doing a UK coast run in 67 or 68. Did you ever come across a bosun by the name of Doler, or Doaler? I think he was a Londoner.

I sailed on the Scottish Star when she got stuck (Stranded), I was the Galley boy then,16 years old. Had to wait until the relief crew could get in and us getting out. They were memorable times I have to say.

Des Cox of Snowbow would probably like to see those slides.
I was on the Uruguay and Brazil Star away back in the late 1950s.

I remember there were two Blue Funnel ships in the Bitter Lakes, possible we meet at the beginning, though memory is not as good now.
