Facebook page "Palm Line Limited, United Africa Co"

Am pleased to report that our new Facebook page has 66 members already. We also have hundreds of pictures of virtually every UAC and Palm vessel, thanks to Alan Weekes who has shared his collection. This will be a permanent electronic record long after all of the Palm Kernels have crossed Escravos and maybe our grandchildren will be curious about Palm Line and what it meant to so many of us.

I sailed with Palm Line on the Bamenda Palm 1964 and again 1966-1967. Good crews. But on my last trip we had a horrible captain, the only people who liked him were the chief mate and the chief engineer. He disliked the deck crew all the black crew and some of the officers.
