"Elder & Fyffes"
The late John Davies from Tudweiliog sailed on
several Fyffes banana boats as Carpenter, from 1957 to 1962. These ships
mainly traded between Central America, United States, West Africa and
Europe. His family has kindly lent us his entire photographic collection,
and they are a fascinating glimpse into the every day life on a British
Merchant ship of this period.
|He sailed on the Chirripo, Corrales, Martina,
Turrialba, Changuinola, Tilaka, Tenadores
and the Zent.
