Enter "Stag Line" in the Search Forums of this site and quite a few mentions of the company and former employees (including myself, very briefly) come up. There is also a direction to a Stag Line website belonging to 'Oceantramp'.Robert said:

I was at South Shields Marine and Tech with a couple of blokes from Stag line, one I think by the name of Pete Cowley.This was in the 1970's
We all had long hair in those days.
I remember watching the Zinnia come into the Tyne and all the girls in the offices waving things at the ship...might even have been 'under garments'.
Was it true that when they came into the Tyne they painted the Starb'd side of the ship only as this was the only side that could bee seen from the Stag Line offices?
All the best
Steve Mills........I worked for Common Brothers by the way.
sailed on the Gardinia April 1962 Tyne to Seven Islands
With being new to this web site I have been trawling through the various pages recently with particular reference to Stag Line with whom I sailed with from 1968 - 1974. I thought you may be interested in the old photograph I have of your old ship.
