    I worked in Glasgow after my sea days with a Donald Macdonald Maclean ex Merch, AB from Barra. We worked for a rigging company called Stephens and Carter. He'd be about 63-64 today. Don't know if this is the same guy.

    That's the same Dan McLean that I know Peg, He told me he was on the Dunkyle. He was also on Salvesen's factory ships in South Georgia.

    Left school at 17 and joined J & J Denholms of 120 St Vincent Street right after I came home from training School in Kent.

    The ships I sailed on were


    Eurofreighter
    Euroliner
    Asiafreighter
    Asialiner
    Artic Troll
    Nordic Commander

    I was part of the crew ,(assistant Steward) that did the "run" job on the Nordic Commander from Largs to Lisbon.

    Left the service on the 7/7/77


    Easy Date to remember

    I remember barra john well and served wie him on the container boats also served wie a giant of a guy whose name I can;t remember but he was famous for saying he was 6ft 11 and 3 quarters .

    sorry to hear dan maclean barra passed away i sailed with himself and his brother alex ( algrego ) as all in denholms knew him we did a trip to australia and back to the uk which was unusual for a tramp ship not to pick up cargo on that long voyage that was in 1972/73 newyear in melbourne and straight home that was the good old days

    ---------- Post added at 03:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:41 PM ----------

    that ship was the sig ragne named after the norwegian owners daughter i wonder where did she end up as she left denholm mang shortly after no wonder must have broke down 50 times that trip the only words the chief knew was all hands below today being g.p, there was nothing we could do but moarn but he gave us a bottle of 4bells and a case of beer often without asking for it so he could do worst
