Hello there,

I still have small sized photographs I took with a Brownie 127 of the City of Lyons lying in the breakers-yard at Bo'ness. This nust have been round-about 1959-1960. Soon as I get my hands on a scanner I'll get them to you. Good luck with your mission.

I mentioned to baileybloke, I've got a couple of photos of the City of Lyons lying at P & W McLellands shipbreaking yard at Bo'ness shortly after she was beached there. Hoping to get those and the rest of my photographs on-site once I get my hands on a scanner. Cheers.

The start of a career

Here ya'go, Bailey, a test for you:

City of Toronto (1973 - 29 derricks!)
City of Canterbury (Fridge ship)
City of Worcester
Dilkara
City of Genoa
City of Montreal
City of St. Albans
City of Glasgow
City Of Auckland
City of Winchester (1977)
City of York

I can't decide whether it's a sad bunch or, compared to a cadet starting today, some good reasons to stay at sea for a career.

No problem Wassenaar. I'll PM you at the weekend. I did a Canada/India run on the Toronto as deck cadet and a couple of stints on the Auckland as cadet and third mate. Good times on the Auckland when Commodore Tommy Rigg got married to Beth. Always remember Amazing Grace blaring out of the ships speakers as we sailed from Durban. Catch you soon.

I heard that story about "Amazing Grace", but had forgotten it. I'm glad that it was true. I loved the Auckland, my favourite ship of all, I think.

Lightbulb Help!



Hi baileybloke, I am really hoping you can help me out, my dad was with Ellermans way back in the day (1955-70ish) and I have heard many of his stories about life on the seas. I am hoping you may have a picture (s) of some of the ships that he has sailed on these being the C o Hereford, Ottowa and Sydney. this is a bit of a shot in the dark and I'm sorry that i don't know anything more specific about these vessels. Also if you or any of the other members can assist me in locating info / copies of ships crew lists, route logs (again i'm afriad i don't know the proper terminology for these things- forgive me) ect I would be eternally grateful. I lookforward to hearing from you in due course and thanks in anticipation.

Hello Baileybloke, my Dad was sunk on the City of Athens 8th Oct 1942 (see photos on site), and was on the City of Corinth when she was torpedoed five weeks later on the 17th Nov 1942. A photo of both would be very much appreciated if you have any.

I know this is cheating but can I just say thank you to all those of you who have sent your best wishes. I suffered a minor stroke and am off work for a little while but I am alive and kicking and a whole lot better than I was. Glad to be here. Happy Christmas shipmates, Baileybloke.

Hi Baileybloke

I have just come across your thread and sorry to hear about your misfortune but just to give you confidence, I had a Heart attack 15 years ago and there definately is "Life after" as long as you think positively. Don't let the Bar Stewards wear you down.

I am also writing with the forlorn hope that you have pics of a couple of early Wilson ships. The are as follows:

Truro (2) 974grt/1922
Torpedo 418grt/1885

Thanks in advance

NigelC

Nigel, my brain is obviously still playing up. The answer is no on both fronts. I think this is the first time I have totally let someone down. Sorry to fail you. Ian

Ian,

Am very sorry to hear of your problems but glad to hear that you are making a recovery. Unfortunately progress is often slow in such cases but you will continue to improve if you look after yourself. I'm afraid all-night lock-ins at the pub are a thing of the past for you!

Good luck

Hi Ian

Thanks for looking but I must say it was a long shot, you have to try every avenue though.

Hope you soon improve

Regards

Nigel

Hello Baileybloke,
I was a Nav Cadet with Ellermans from 1973 to 1975. I was on four ships, the Oxford, Glasgow, Canberra and Toronto. I would be most grateful if you could supply photos of any of these ships but especially the City of Toronto with her maple leaf Canadian Line funnell livery. I have only ever seen a photo of her with the black, white and buff colours.
All the best and a Merry Xmas
Dave Reynolds

Hi Dave, I was a Nav Cadet on the 'Toronto from November 1972 to April 1973 on a CIP run and Third Mate very briefly on the 'Canberra in May 1974. The Toronto with her maple leaf livery is a rare sight but I will check out my database to see what I have. I've checked a couple of relevant Disposition of Sea-going Personnel and I have you showing as being on leave as at 5th August 1974 and at Glasgow College of Nautical Studies as at 7th February 1975. I'll get back to you. All the best, Ian

Alex, I've just noticed you sailed with Chris Witt on the 'Bedford in December 71. Chris and I were at Plymouth School of Nav just a few months earlier along with Alan Smith. Chris kindly volunteered the information to my Mum and Dad that I had started smoking despite me threatening him with blue murder beforehand. It was good to know who your mates were!!!!
