Hello Nelson, like you sailed with Ropners, late 50s, my first ship after the training school Vindicatrix, was the S.S. Swainby, i thought it was the best in the world, or maybe it was the best crew , wondered if there was anyone out theresailed on her, my memory tells me most of the crew were from Newcastle,cheers to all and yes this site is the best, Rich.

Terry,

Sow Sow La is probably your best source for all things Blue Funnel. I am sure he has the photograph. I was on another China Boat (Gladstone Dock) the afternoon the fire started but no photographs.
