Nowshera and Nyanza

Anybody about who sailed as engineer on above. Served a good period of my eng. app. at the builders Scotts' of Greenock, from marking off table scribing the turbine casing forgings to outfitting in basin.

Joined "Nyanza" as 4th. Engineer in Mombasa in June '72, and left her in Hamburg at the end of July. A good ship, with a good crowd. But that's what we expected in B.I..

Not very relevant to the query, since I never sailed on these well-thought of vessels, but just posting my salaams to Peter F.

Hi,
This is a tad late, but I haven't been on here long.
I sailed on both. Nowshera 29/7/71-23/4/72 as 5th/4th/E/O. Nyanza 24/4/72-30/6/72 as 4/E/O. Left in Mombasa to join Raj as wanted to stay out East and not come home. You must have relieved me. Was only on the Raj for two weeks. If I remember, had 3 days in Mombasa and Totosan organised a safari to the Tsavo. I also sailed on the Nardana after the Raj. All great ships. Best years of my life were at sea with BI.
Geoff.

Have been sorting out some "old" slides and found these. I'm just hoping I uploaded them right.

Goodday any BI out there,

Long long ago thread. My first ship as deck app.. What a beautiful fine handsome ship. I. Joined 1958. 55 years as a seafarer since then and never lost my admiration for her. Great race through the Med in bad weather with the Clan Malcolm.
Master Capt.Robson,C/O Pat Bidmead (closest to Sir Francis Drake I ever met),2/0 Bill Bolitho (Tough Aussie) 3/0 Dave Nurse.Deck Appies Ken Smith,Bob Palmer and Me. Great bunch of people. Engineers of course just as well but sorry cant remember names.
I see that in Fred Perry's BI bible The Nyanza had the highest speed on trials over the measured mile of any other BI ship. Never mind those so called clippers the "W"s !!
Salaams Keith Marks. South Africa

Geoff, why don't you post your engine room photos in the gallery in the "Life onboard" section and more people will see them.......

Cheers Frank

Hi Frank,
My computer skills are not very good. In fact my wife reckons I shouldn't do any more than play solitaire. But I'll give it a go.
Geoff.
Have just tried, but file size exceeds limit.
