Clan MacGregor (3)

On charter to Harrisons of Liverpool

Recalled by Reg Mercer

"In the early 70's I was 3rd Mate on the Clan MacGregor when we did a charter for the Scandinavian East Africa Line.

The funnel was repainted in SEAL colours and we carried a Norwegian Supercargo. I remember that he was always smoking a rather large cigar. We got to visit quite a few Scandinavian ports which was a bit different from the usual loading/discharge ports.

I joined in Wallsend with the ship just coming out of drydock. Within a couple of hours of sailing we had an engine room fire which was not a good start to the charter, but it improved after that. I have a photo of the funnel which unfortunately is in black and white but I seem to remember it was bright yellow with red, white and blue stripes!"
