Palm Line Photos for My Dad

I am looking for pictures of all the Palm Line ships my Dad, Peter Millett, sailed on. He sailed on 23 Palm Line Boats in total and I have found pictures of 14 of them. Does any of you Palm Liners have any of the following?:

SS Mendi Palm (Dads first ship. 5th Engineer July 1956)
SS Dahomey Palm
SS Benin Palm
SS Lagos Palm (Definatley Steam Ship, I have a photo of MV Lagos)
SS Tema Palm

MV Makeni Palm
MV Burutu Palm
MV Sapele Palm
MV Makurdi Palm

Dads time in Palm Line started on steam ships and finished in November 1969 with MV Africa Palm. He did one trip with Thuntanks and then went toAthel Line.

I am making up an album of photosfor him and hope you can help.

Thank you
CED

Have you tried the following site : http://www.photoship.co.uk/Old%20Ships/

I have found Mendi Palm there and probably more will be there. Disbable your pop up blocker before entering the site as the site does not work properly if you dont.

Kind regards

Chris.

Did you get all your photos re: post in 2005? I'm a SN newcomer 2008. If not let me know - I was 2/O & 3/O on some listed & have pics of the last 4 vessels.

This is a very old thread ... Even the excommunicated Benjidog gets a mention. We haven't heard from CED for a fair while.

Hi !

If you are still looking for photos of Palm Line ships, there is now a Facebook Palm Line site with lots of photos of their ships.

Recommend you join the Palm Line Facebook Group. The dates you mention are after my time with Palm Line but others in the Group may have known your uncle.
Good luck.

Photos and articles

I have a number of Palm Bulletins given to me by my neighbour Ken St Paul who worked for various shipping lines as well as the Palm Line. Ken was on various ships including the Elmina Palm as well as being stationed in Gambia. The publications are dated around the 1950's and include various photos and articles as well as a list of the ships and crew officers in the back pages. I am keeping a couple but the rest are ....?
