Hi Jamie.
Would like to enroll in the NZ branch of the society and also the Australian branch.

I travel to Nz about every 6mnths and would look forward to the reunions.

Went to sea on Knight Templar in 1965 joined Saracen, Crusader, Almaric,and releived on NZ coast as engineer on Ceramic Corinthic Gothic.

Do Crusader line have a role in the society?or a we persona non gratia.

Congratulations on the work on this website you have inputed it has helped me greatly.

looking forward to your reply.

Roger Widdowson.

Only just got on to the site so not clear about the form. May I as a UK resident join Shaw Savill NZ. I was a deck cadet on Coptic, Illyric and Athenic, plus a few day relieving on DM. I have visited Edwin Fox and Star of India , are there any other vessels left ? In retirement I am planning a small model of Coptic and am looking for photos, particularly anything showing deck/bridge in some detail. I would appeciate any advice or photos. I have a couple of old photos taken on Athenic which I will post , when I work how to do so

It's interesting that there is a SSA society,I sailed on the last voyage of the Dominion Monarch in '62,leaving NZ was very tearfull,to say the least,church bells rang and the fireboats streamed their hose's in Wellington,and thats not all,somebody stole the ships bell from the foredeck,I often wonder if it was ever found,I figured it would apear in the Wellington Bar some day,did that ever happen?Of course the Dominion Monarch was loved by the people of NZ,it was the ship that brought back the troops to NZ after the 2nd world war,Paddy.

Hello Paddy,

I did my first deep sea voyage on the " Demented Maniac " ( as the Dm was known by her crew ) in 1950, also did the second voyage, both times as Elect Engr. She was a great ship, and well appointed for passengers. At one time she was the largest refrigerated cargo ship in the world, but still carried 500 1st class passengers. Terence Willams. ( R538301 )
