2 thoughts on “Port Lincoln jetty, South Australia in 1956

  1. When loading grain there in 1954 on the Eskbank there was a Counties Ship on the opposite side of the wharf. The crew there were pretty rough and caused an almighty row when they started up the small steam engine which was used to handle the grain wagons . It was parked in a siding at the end of them jetty each night ready for the morning . Well the lads ,after the dance at the local hall closed, started the engine and drove it back to the ship. The police came aboard our ship as the Counties crew said that we were to blame but they could not pin the blame on anyone and we all had a good laugh.
