Hello from new member

Greetings from Brisbane, Australia. I recently discovered this site. I have an interest in ships which started with the Titanic when i was a kid, and then progressed to other ocean liners, passenger and container ships when I started working for what was then P&O Containers (landside, not on the ships, sadly).
Looking forward to exploring this site and posting more comments in the future.

Hi Cynter..
I started with P&O in Auckland in 1990 in the office, doing export documentation..then in 96 I moved to Wellington, stayed with them after the merger with Nedlloyd and in 2001 they trahnsferred me to the Brisbane office, where I've been ever since. Bit of a climate change from Wellington! Now of course P&O Nedlloyd has been bought by Maersk so we'll see what happens....
cheers Andrews

Hi Andrews,
Did you get to work with Dick Mogridge, he came from Tasman Express Line to P and O Nedlloyd, first Auckland, but I think they wanted him in Wellington.
