Nigaristan

Hi

Nigaristan was my first ever trip to sea

I was 5 or six years old

Bahrain to UK or other way round

My Mum Aunt Sister and me

Next trip we did was Laarderkerk

Ended up doing 10 years with UASC

May have some old b&w photos of Nigaristan in atiic at Mum's

Does anyone know what this is for, and why it would have been made?
Many thanks!

Did my first trip on the "Nigaristan" as third mate round the coast in 1964.Liverpool and Swansea to discharge and round to the East coast to load.Then it was the dear old "Khuzistan" for my first deep sea trip.

Hi Tony - did you ever meet my father, Norman Wray? We sailed out to the Persian Gulf (I was 6!) with my family in 1963, leaving London on Nov 5th and getting as far as Basra, I think. We must have returned around May 1964. He was Chief Officer at the time.

Hello David, yes I seem to recollect he was the mate on the "Floristan" on her maiden voyage (I was third mate). I also seem to recollect he was a nice chap, quiet and unassuming . He backed me up when, in Liverpool, I refused to attend the old man's maiden voyage cocktail parties, as I ,obviously, preferred to go and visit my girlfriend in Warrington.
