    Hi Vernon, I joined the sheafwear in January 1965 and enjoyed three happy trips on her as Assistant steward. Happy days.

    I did three trips on the Sheafwear in 1965. She was a happy ship and first got promoted on her. Does anyone know where I might get a photo of her.I have one of all my old ships bar her. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
