I came across this site whilst surfing the net for stuff about Palm Line. My dad, Rod Harlow was with Palm Line, his only company whilst he was in the merchant navy, from (I think) 1962 to 1970 on the West Africa routes.

My original idea was to try and get hold of a Palm Line flag (in my ignorance thinking this would be simple as "you can buy anything off the internet theses days" according to some!) and give to him as a present.

This has proved to be a pretty fruitless excercise but I still want to pursue something along these lines and was wondering if anybody knew of any websites or anything where it would be possible to get hold of any old Palm Line-related items. I found one site where someone was selling a Palm Line T-shirt, wine glass, wine mats and matchbox but that's all so far.

If anybody has any suggestions or knows of anything which may be of any help whatsoever I'd be most grateful. I'm not holding out much hope about the flag but again any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

Of course, anybody who might remember Rodney Harlow please feel free to drop a line also. I believe he started off as 4th Mate and eventually a navigation officer.

Thanks for taking the time to read.
