Volume Eight - Pre-Victorian to the present day - more aspects - Pamir and Passat - the end of an era . . .

An excellent website dedicated to the 'Pamir' has been created and is hosted by a kind gentleman named Philippe Bellamit. He has some images of Passat and Pamir which he has kindly allowed for use to enhance our Penarth Dock story. Click here to go to Philippe's website. Thank you Philippe for your unique contribution.


I found the following account of the arrival of these ships at Penarth, being a response to an article within 'Sea Breezes' by a gentleman named Clive Spencer living now in New Zealand. He recalls that the barques Pamir and Passat loaded at Port Victoria, Spencer Gulf, Australia in 1949 for what was to prove to be the very last Grain Race from Australia to the United Kingdom. I emailed Clive and he was very happy to contribute his story to the website - thank you Clive!
