Hi Bryan
Would just like to give you a warm Welcome to this very good site!
Here you will find lots of info,good Crew and with luck also find a few old Shipmates!
So sit back,relax and just enjoy the trip!
Hope we will have you here for a long time!
A site truly worthy of the British Merchant Navy!

I was on the Dunnottar in 1958 doing her very lasy Voyage under the UCL Colours!
Sailed from Cape Town to KG5 (Tillbury) as 1st Class asst stwd!
Also was on the Winchester in 1958/59 Tourist Class Winger!
Small World mate,so we must have been on the Winchester at the same time,but different ratings!
Do you recall any of the Incidents recorded on the Trip Sheet!? I remember the Ship hitting the Quay in Las Palmas,and the story we heard of the Fire in the Fuel Tank,cant recall the others,also do you recall the Ship having to pull into Freetown on that 1959 Trip!
Think it was something to do with a very ill passenger? Not too sure!


If you would like to join in and have your Full name R Number and First Ship
Included in the Flag project then please pass it on to Mike Hall who is doing a Main Flag for all
to be displayed some time in one of the UK Museums!
Thank you

Welcome Bryan to the site, the best of its type on the net. By your dates you missed the explosion on the Capetown. Sure you will find some on this site who will remember you.:eek:
