Hawkeye,

Tanjong Mani! Sejinkat! Gee, you really did get to see the world. I have not seen those names in print since we used to run there in Jardines in the early sixties to load logs for Japan

Derek,

sorry I had missed your post on the photo in Port Moody.
There are a few more photos of crew in my Gallery. If you go to the Gallery and click search then put Blanchland in the left hand side and my name HAWKEY01 in the right you should get up all my photos of the ship.
Kept in touch with Lee for many years but lost contact years back and have been unable to find him since.
A couple of others have been on SN - Bill Rowstron 2nd Eng and Ray Ledger who was Apprentice who paid of sick.

Nick,

That was the fun of the old tramps as you will know. Never likely to see such places on a vast box boat. Still think we had one of the best eras at sea before the modern day ships.

Too true Nev, I was paid off the Blanchland in Adelaide with acute appendicitis otherwise would have still been there when you joined and would have done that long trip you talked about. Hard working ship but great crowd, great food. Remember when we had to move ship in Auckland using tugs as the engine was in bits, we sent the mate to Ma Gleasons to try and get some bodies. To no avail I might add. He didn't come back either. So Tom Lyons the Chief, Borthwick the O.M 2 sober ABs and yours truly did the honours.
Ah happy days.
