CHANGUINOLA was built in 1957 by Alexander Stephen for Fyffes as were many of their vessels and also registered in Glasgow.
This was taken in May 1975 and shows her as OMOA lying at Dalmuir for scrapping.

Served as junior R/O for two trips on the Changuinola, (1963) Garston to Tiko (Cameroons). Chief R/O T.P.Jones from Shropshire. A lovely ship with happy memories of number tens, good food, football matches in sweltering heat and the tiny port of Tiko up in the jungle.

Changuinola

"Changuinola" dry docking in Southampton, Summer 1961...spent a lot of time standing bye down there, remember playing cricket on the boat decks of the S boats and also for the Fyffes shore staff at their ground.

Patrick Byrne. Stoker.

Did anyone remember a Patrick Byrne? He was a stoker on board the Changuinola during November 16th 1962 through to December 12th 1962? Im trying to trace anyone that may have knew him as Im looking to piece together as much of his life as possible.

Kindest regards.
