Ex Ellerman Line Crew

Hello - my father George Herbert Salter was Ellerman Line crew. He took many super 8 films on his travels. He was master for a number of years. I have just had all his films transferred digitally and am in the process of uploading them to youtube here is a link to a couple of clips of City of Bedford and city of Agra. I have lots more to add but it may take me a little time. Many of the clips feature crew. https://youtu.be/Qp5y_8BxcMg and
. He ws with Ellerman from about 1946 until 1981. The clips are mostly from the 1960's

Sailed with your dad on City of Agra, he was C/O I was on my 2nd. ship as a deck apprentice think I joined her about mid 1962 and know we left her in Gibraltar on 23/12/62 stayed overnight in the Bristol hotel and flew home to Gatwick on the morning of Christmas Eve, I managed to get to Kings Cross just in time to get the last train to Doncaster that had a connection to Scunthorpe that day, no taxi available no phone at home so had to lug my trunk about 2 miles and wake my parents up to let me in it was a supprise for them in the early hours of Christmas Day. I also remember him getting his first command I believe it was the Bedford as a friend of mine Hugh Townsend was also on his first trip as C/O, they had an unfortunate event in the Atlantic when some tween deck hatch beams failed and the machines on them fell into the hold, if my memory is correct they were Catapillar Machines.

I suppose we all have strong memories of our first trip, most of the other people I sailed with over the years have blurred features, certainly very few have names that I can recall.
Malin Head! That's quite out of the way isn't it! Furthest north, on the west coast, I've been is Westport. My wife has family in Clifden so we visit that area a lot, but that's it really.
I'm glad that you're still around! and well, I hope!

I sailed with Harry Compton my first trip. I was the writer he was 2nd steward, he was a great guy so sorry to hear he died.

Hi, Steven
I sailed with your dad, Kerr, on the City of Montreal - 69 OR 70 i think. I was his A/P. Never forgot him, he taught me a lot and was a great boss, hope he is still with us.
