Always liked the look of them, think they were called the Liverpool to Lisbon Subs, worked by on a few of them, served on the Algerian, and Corinthian. Cheers Bob

Was on the Anatolian in 67, were diverted due to a Dockers strike in Liverpool, to Toronto. Not a nice place for a "market boat" in December. Never mind made it home on Xmas eve!!

Hello All, I have read with interest the messages in this thread,the ships which were described as "Lisbon Subs" were in the 1500 gross ton range -give or take a ton here and there, Motor driven with twin screws capable of 12 knots they plied the Lisbon- Oporto trade "Darinian" (48) "Mercian" (48) and "Palmelian" (48) engine was amidships,all were 273 feet long, however the food was very good the deck crowd was very few as we worked 4 on 4 off and then they wanted you to work your watch below as overtime!!--I couldnt stand the pace and got out quick after one trip.
Cheers Peter (Thumb)
