The mate on the Ivybank was a demoted Baron boat master, name. Of Smith, he wore a uniform jacket with masters rings, but with the top ring removed

From 21241 to Jimmy Mair. I was delighted to pick up your message on Baron Boater, Ships Nostalgia. I am also a former Baron Boat man who knows you very well for you and I served together on the Baron Garioch under Les Graham for about 18 months. Please respond as I'd love to have a chat with you after 50 years. Yours aye, your old shipmate and buddy, Dave Dickson

I did the relieving on this ship and it was sold then.(1967) The Captain was told by the superintendent to go o the office and expect the worst. He was "let go".
He if my memory serves me right was one of Baron line apprentices.

Hungry Hogarths Relative

Hi there - I'm the Grandson of Hugh Hogarth - the last of the founding family members to manage Hogarth and Son's Shipping. Following Hugh Hogarth's death, my uncle, Max Cheales, managed the firm until 1986 when it ceased operations. I don't know much about the company except that it was called "Hungry Hogarths" because they were so tight and perhaps not too generous with the crew. (Don't hold that against me). I never got to see the company in operation but did spend a great deal of time in Scotland in the later 80's and into the 90's. My mother, Marion Jane Hogarth launched a few of the Baron Line of Ships. I'll see if I have some pictures to upload. Thank you for this thread and website!.

Welcome to SN. Look forward to seeing the photos - especially if your mother launched some of the later SSM managed ships.

What an interesting post ! Thank you for the fascinating family history and snippets about the famous company that you must be very proud of. Any pics would be great to see.

My connection is only as a mariner of that era ( the heyday) in the 1950's which I spent in another iconic company similar to Hogarth's, namely Andrew Weir's Bank Line. We sailed the world alongside many Baron boats, and I also had a best friend from the nautical school that chose the Hogarth route. He sailed on the Baron Cawdor. At that school (1949) we visited our very first deep sea ship discharging grain in Ipswich docks. It was a Baron Boat that we lads at the time thought was huge!

My account of those years is laid out in an ebook called " Any Budding Sailors?" Published by Amazon.

SN is a great site, and gets more interesting as the years go by, and all the threads of our huge 1900's maritime enterprise get recorded.

Best Wishes / Alan Rawlinson

Greetings Hogarth grandson. We don't have your name but I guess you will recognise yourself.
Scottish Ship Management still has an active website which you are very welcome to browse through. As it shows, we not only have an active group of ex crew and office staff who meet not only weekly for 'lunch' in Glasgow but still have a vibrant Annual Reunion. We would like to welcome you to join in if you are in the area sometime.
You may like to continue here or, better on our own website, Scottish Ship Management. Surely some of our ex Hogarth or Lyle guys will have knowledge which could interest you.

I sailed on Five Baron Boats,Belhaven,Ardrossan,Kinnaird,Maclay,Napier.
Times had changed when I sailed on them.The standards of food had improved
and the accommodation was terrific.S.S.M managed them,and were an excellent company to work for.There website is worth a look for any information
on the Baron Boats or just a visit to see our Company in its heyday.All gone now but memories still alive and well
