Capt. George Harris - Baron Minto

Anyone on the baron minto march 1963 or baron belhaven september 1964 or woodford may 1962.
Hi Ray, I am doing some family history and my Dad was Captain of the Baron Minto around this time (Capt.George Harris). He sadly died suddenly on leave in April 1964. Was he the skipper when you sailed ?
Thanks
Alastair

A belated welcome aboard, Alastair.
I'm afraid Ray Morgan hasn't signed on since 2007 so you may not get a reply.
A similair post in the shipping companies forum may get a better response.
Find your way around our ship and have a good voyage.

I saild with Scottish Ship Management in the 70,s & 80,s served on the Baron Renfrew, Napier, Maclay,and Kinnaird as well as a few of the Cape boats, many good memories,wish they were still running. If anyone is looking for imformotion on Baron Boats the Scottish Ship Management sight is a good starting place
Good luck.

Ernie Just a note to let you know I worked by on the baron renfrew at Canada dock Liverpool 1960 Myself a chief steward a mate and an engineer she was riddled with steam flies and roaches and we had to strip her clean before she was fumigated.The thing was I did want to sail on her but was given a blue star boat instead Regards Tony Allen

Hi Tony I was on the Renfrew in '77' I'm afraid the fumigation done no good, I remember going into the bar one night and swiched on the ghetto blaster only to see a roach running accross the radio dial (inside),it must have been a favourit haunt as they were also present inside the sterio on the Maclay.

Baron Elphinstone 1952/53. R/O. Rough one, Lascar crew including the Chf Stwd. A Captain Campbell from Islay. Outside of the Mate the rest were all in the 60's. 2nd Eng was actually 70. Story I was given was that they had accepted shares in lieu of wages at some point. No idea as to the truth of that.
I have a picture somewhere of the Officers in Fremantle Xmas 52 - I went ashore to eat later...
Good times though, much of it spent between Port Louis and Laurenco Marques. Sugar out, scrawny cattle back. No tourist glitz then. I loved Port Louis...wicked grin.
