  1. Hi Alan, Thank you for sending me info about The Bank Line. I served on the MV Teakbank as 6th & 5th Engineer (1964 to 1968) for about 4 years. Just a quick email to ask whether you have any photos of the ‘Teakbank’?? I have scoured your site and cannot find and decent photos that I can add to my collection. Any info as to where I can look for some greatly appreciated. My 4 years with Andrew Weir were the happiest years I spent at sea. I served under Captain Wigham and remember him well. Have never been able to ‘find’ any of the lads I sailed with over the years. But they ‘remain’ with me.

    All of us are extremely lucky to have this wonderful site and someone like your good self to have set it all up.

    1. Hi Micheal – Great to hear from you. I’m sure there are some snaps of the ‘Teakbank’ so will hunt them out. You have the best chance of getting in touch with old shipmates by looking in on my page on Facebook titled bank line nostalgia. Also, on Ships Nostalgia .com in the bank line section if you don’t already know about that. They seem to get the best viewing figures!

Go to the ‘ Q’ on the front page and type in the name – they will come up/Alan
