    Hi Martin, My father Brian Kay sailed on the Alaric from Sept 1966 when it left Glasgow to when it returned to Middleborough in Feb 1967. He was the 2nd officer and my mother also sailed on the trip as the Nurse - her name was Carol. It was his 23rd Voyage on SSL ships having also served on the following:
    Taranaki - 2 trips - cadet
    Runic - 1 trip
    Coptic - 1 trip
    Ceramic - 2 trips
    Illyric - 3 trips - 3rd officer
    Doric - 1 trip
    Afric - 1 trip
    Megantic - 2 trips
    Persic - 2 trips
    Alaric - 1 trip - 2nd officer
    Athenic - 1 trip - this was his last trip

    I am fortunate enough to have his hand written log book containing all the trips, what was carried, where they went , all dates , what was dropped off and what was picked up. It includes all the names of the officers for everysingle trip

    As a funny story, I was conceived on the Alaric and thus have Alaric as my third name and looking back at the dates, the ship left Glasgow on the 26th Sept 1966 and finished the journey in Feb 1967 - I was born in July 1967, so conceived at Sea

  3. Thanks Doc Vernon thanked for this post

    Hi Timothy!A nice looking ship.
    I l ike your quote "As a funny story, I was conceived on the Alaric and thus have Alaric as my third name and looking back at the dates, the ship left Glasgow on the 26th Sept 1966 and finished the journey in Feb 1967 - I was born in July 1967, so conceived at Sea "

    Looking in a database about the vessel,I see SS + A were originally going to name her ATTIC.Just think,one of your nicknames could have been Lofty !
    (I'll get my coat !)
