Hi all.

I am a new user.

My uncle Tom Sherry sailed on the Tribesman and was on her last main voyage 1946.

I was seven at the time and he brought back for myself and my cousin a coconut - I had never seen one before- Cabury's chocolate,a toy six gun with caps and gave us both a 10 shilling note, which was an absolute fortune at then.

I myself sailed on the Queen Mary, the Parthia and the Caronia in the early 60's as an engineer officer.

Alan.

Always good to hear of personal links to the ships, Alan (and welcome).
Toy guns with caps ... can still remember that distinctive smokey smell!
I suppose they must be banned nowadays. And 10 bob notes have gone.
Well we still have chocolate and coconuts, anyway.
