In another world, another time, far, far away…..
About three quarters through the the next post in the Ship to Shore series, on the Falkland Islands, but in the course of surfing/research came across some amazing pictures that I thought I would share beforehand. When the Atlantic Conveyor was lost, the Atlantic Container Line eventually...www.thinkdefence.co.uk
I sailed on the replacement AC, late'90's / early '00's. I did a short trip from Liverpool to Antwerp. The ship was on a regular run from N.E. U.S. / Canada to N.W. Europe, Liverpool / Antwerp / Bremerhaven and some Scandinavian ports. Nice ship & accommodation but not a very social mix, everyone with their own TV in their cabins, barely saw anyone outside a working environment all the time I was on there. The ship had, at the time IIRC, a Panama flag. The senior officers were Swedish with the junior officers and crew all Fillipino.
