Smile BISCO ships at Immingham Dock

I am new to the site and have been interested in the comments about the iron ore ships many of you sailed on.

Unfortunately I never did get to sea(always my amibition as a kid) but in the late 60's did work for Carlbom Shipping Agents at Immingham Dock who acted as agents for the ore being imported by BISCO destined forthe steelworks at Scunthorpe.

I remember well the Denholm boats in particular Sir Andrew Duncan, Houlders, Lyle , Cory and many others and was always welcomed on board by the captains with beer etc!!

Carlbom Shipping, were and still are one of the nicest companies around. Years ago I took my young son up to Immingham to visit the China Pride and Carlbom (the company and the man) could not have taken more care and interest.

Hi Thall, welcome aboard this great vessel, remember Imingham in the 60,s had a good night out with the Chipperfields when the Circus set sail for South Africa, can you recall the ocasion, they had two tank landing craft with all the animals aboard, the elephants were chained to the deck, and there was all hell on at the loch,s when they sailed, but someone gave them permission!!! anyway enjoy your venture.

Welcome to SN from Lancashire Thall.

I am sure that you will enjoy the site.

As regards wa002f0328's note about the elephants on board, I am glad I didn't have to clean up after them! I wonder how much poo they produced between Scotland and South Africa? Doesn't bear thinking about does it.

Regards,

Brian

Hi Brian, Yes there was quite a stink, not over the muck, but Animal lovers protesting, I believe they stopped off, at the canary isles, and one or two more places on the way down.
