    Hello all,

    Hi: I don't have any names, but I have a couple of photos taken in Halifax on the Maiden Voyage of the 3rd "Newfoundland" in 1964, I believe.
    Hmmmm! I tried to upload, but the system "failed". Contact me directly if you are interested.

    Allan, I have had that problem when uploading photos, I believe there is a limit to the size of the photo you are uploading not sure what that is though I tried a 600kB no-go but 150kB went OK.

    Anyone who sailed on the Temple Main on her round the world trip from August 65 to February 66.
    Also Ringbolt 67 who sailed on Constance Bowater and left the ship with me in Charleston, South Carolina, USA in Feb 1967
