Another two which I hope brings back memories. Ever sail under Captain Lyall? I knew his son hence getting on board in Glasgow. That was her last trip if I remember correctly.
The chap walking on deck in the original shot was I think Bowring/s Marine Super or equivalent.

My Father Cliff Meredith sailed as an EDH on the Trinculo twice in 1958, in January from Newport returning to Glasgow and from Glasgow in November returning to Middlesbrough in December, this being his last trip after nine years at sea.
If anyone has any more pictures of the Trinculo I would be glad to see them.

Sailed with a Captain Lyall on Newer Trinculo in 1978 and his wife was with him.Very memorable trip with about four weeks alongside loading Sugar for Philly.Most memorable moment was shippers party in Lautoka where guests
included Fijiian PM and some members of cabinet.We had all sorts of splendid
exotic food loaded in Singapore previously with Bowring party in mind.Only problem was Grocer got pissed on day of party and all food was still frozen at time of party. we had bits of chicken leg s left over from lunch. Grocer made a half naked appearance looking for a livener at about midnight behind the bar.
The skippers face at thatmoment is a treasured memory

I see there is a good picture of the Trinculo in the files here, it was on the display as I logged in. First Bowring ship with A/C in the saloons, but fitted on top of the Boiler Room!

Triculo was one of my 'charges' in BSC days and was one of those 'middle-order' ships, like the Denholm vessels which wasn't a brilliant cargo carrier...seem to remember something like 13800/14300 ish winter marks.......

However,mention of the grub........we did a pay-off in the Tees early 60's and the smoked haddock for afternoon tea was memorable.....both in size and quantity and I remember the Federation man, Derek,specially praising the catering staff!

Ok

In 1961/2 Trinculo was regular to Tees and the Master instead of just saying he wanted X £'s for payoff would stipulate wxactly how many of each coin he wanted. The same man could look at a long list of figures and give the answer without assistance.......
Who was he??..it wasn't the late Captain Ogden
