I have been collecting books and magazines since 1974 when I first brought SM, November issue. I have most of them from the first in 1966 but with a few missing for 1973-74 and the last year or so.

I have issues of Sea Breezes from 1946. I did have the complete St & Y until I moved and left two full boxes with a mate to look after, when I moved but he dumped them (nice mate).

I joined the W.S.S. in October 1977 when we first started the Gloucester branch (there are only about 5 original members left) and I have issues marine news from 1954 with full annuals from 1966. I have collected and I am still collecting mostly those early mags if I can find them cheap enough

But I will agree with you all about the lack of sustained commentary in the mags now. There seem to be a lot of space between the articles and the pictures. I was frustrated with ST & Y when they published photos that I have a copy, but they didn’t give a full history of the ship or what happened to them

I am seriously on the lookout for any 1946 issues of Sea Breezes. Anyone have any, know of any, bound or unbound, please contact. (price within reason) would not be a problem.

Fisher Nautical ([email protected]) or tel 01273890273. They have a big selection and I see from their lists Vol2 June-Dec 1946 listed.

Might be better to email for their VERY comprehensive list of books and magazines. It's a bit mind boggling! Prices for some of the juicier titles I would like are out of reach, sadly.

I have now managed to complete my 1946 volumes. However, on running an up date on my collection I find that my 1995 has been completed with two Novembers!! Whoops. Anyone out there got a December 1995 issue tucked away somewhere that they would sell???

Sad to report, but Ships in Focus Record has ceased to exist as a part work with Issue 64 (Late 2016) being the last. There is an annual publication planned, the first in 2017, but I haven't heard anything yet.

I am hand-binding my copies, but it's a bit slow as I am re-reading the articles; the pics are of a consistently high quality.

Years ago I was asked by the then editor of Sea Breezes to write an article on my circumnavigation under sail. I was told it could be several months before it was published. I wrote the article and sent it with a pile of original photos. Months and months went by, the editor died and I asked for my photos back, at least. They eventually told me they were lost. Very annoying !
And Ddraigmor - nice to see you back on SN. Didn't you disappear for a while?
Incidentally I am intrigued by your Ddraigmor. Being a Welsh speaker the double D seems wrong - should be the single D - Draigmor ""
Best wishes.

I had an article published in Sea Breezes in the Feb 1988. It was published the month after I submitted it and I got the cheque a couple of weeks later. The editor at that time was C H Milsom.

By the way Sidsal, that post by Ddraigmor was over ten years ago. He's not back, and I doubt you will see him here again.

regards,
Pat

Our local Chapters branch carries a fine selection of nautical magazines including Classic British Cargo Liners and Ships Illustrated Classic Ships, which publications contain a large and varied selection of photographs of the type of vessel most on this site appear to have sailed on.

Sea Breezes are now pretty good to deal with. I have had several accounts of voyages in the Bank Line published, including the last which was about a RTW voyage in the Ernebank in Coronation year 1953. ( The current issue has an article about the old ‘ Duke of Lancaster.) An unsolicited modest payment appears in my bank account from time to time!

And "Coastal Shipping" magazine goes from strength to strength. There are now two free supplements published every year. Best of all, the cost of a subscription rarely increases - although the number of pages in the magazine does increase. How do they do it???

I still get "The Log" here in Oz and find it very informative with some excellent photos of vessels I have sailed in. The part of Shipping Companies is a bit confusing as the different Companies seem to join up and start new routes
every issue, still get names like ANL but it sure aint the Oz Guvmint Shipping Co. any more!!

Now that ST & Y have learned to spell it I feel it has overtaken both rivals above.
i have both sea breezes and ships monthly formats - and find them a lot more interesting - some of my sea breezes go back as far as 1935 - and ships monthly 1975 - the latter in their binders
