Elder Dempsters

Some where I happened across a load of correspondence about "Zini" which I cannot now find.I was Second Mate in "Zini" with "Sam" Weller when she collided in fog,off the Varne Buoy, with the Shell Tanker "Verona ". About 58 I guess. If that would be of use to anybody, I'll happily respond.

Welcome aboard, Graham.
If you look here you'll find some information on Zini
https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=20216
I'm sure the crew will be able to help with more information.
Explore the ship, join in and enjoy the trip.

Hello Graham:

Welcome from Aberdeen. I was with Elder Dempster from 1954 till 1970 and
sailed on a couple of ships with Capt. Weller. You will see reference to Capt. Weller on this site in the Shipping Lines Sub-Forums section. There will be plenty of interest for you on Ships Nostalgia.

Regards - James Smith.

Forgot to mention that you will find reference to Zini on page one of the Sub-Forums section, and to Capt. Weller on page two.

Tks for your response. When I was with him he signed crews on their ability to play football.....I DID THREE YOYAGES!.....I had to stop scoring goals to get off. Truthfully, he once said to me in the Shipping Office in Liverpool while signing a crew..."we still haven't got anybody with a left foot " His proud boast was that no team of his had ever lost to the P.H. Club. We had a Chief Steward who lived in Litherland,Liverpool who also followed him around, I can't remember his Surname. His christian name was Bill.....known to his team mates as "Willy Winklstrass" You have to use your imagination. regards.
and thanks Graham
