Hi Shipmates,
I sailed on the Aussie Star,New Zealand Star and Napier Star from 1950 to 1954,to Oz ,Kiwi Land and South Africa. Hope I may meet up with some of my ex shipmates,a great bunch of guys. Blue Star people, do you remember "Dobbie" who was shore supper at the dock office at Victoria Docks London. This site is surely a nostalgic journey back thru time---thanks.

Welcome to the site Neil, I hope your shore supper was not to tough, did you have him in a sandwich or with chips.
There is an excellent Blue Star site @http:/www.bluestarline.org

Hi again,the shore supper was a real tough old bird,and as they say in the dear old UK " chips with everthing" I apologise for the spelling mistake,at my age you get away with everthing (except from former school teachers or my dear wife,who is my srongest critic--and generally keeps me right--if she sees it first?)
