In the Beginning On-Line Comments Vessels Photos Poems Sales Passenger Lists

We received a poem from Harry Simpson on 28th June 2010 see On Line Comments to commemorate the 50th Aniversary of the M.V.Otaio's maiden voyage in 1958. A reunion was held at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Albert Dock, Liverpool, 13th.June 2008. Several cadets who sailed on voyage No.1 as well as others from later trips were present with their wives; 80 people in all.

Harry and i exchanged many emails as a result of his 28th June contribution.

I came to the conclusion that our online antidotal stories and photos could be further enhanced with a poetry section particularly when someone like Harry who worked on New Zealand Shipping vessels has poems of a nautical theme.
