How many Felixstowe Dockers worked on this terminal and had some good times.
And here is the end of ASN
And now we have…...
The Port of Felixstowe is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the completion of its first roll-on roll-off berth (More details here: http://bbc.in/1DqJKcL )
To mark the occasion, the port has let us publish these fantastic black and white photographs dating back to the 1960s.
What are your memories of sailing from Felixstowe?
I had 30 good years on the Port. Done a year on ASN but the fumes and noise made me migrate off to Trinity to be a Berth Op. The men and commoradierty were outstanding on ASN. The biggest cancer on the port now is two tier pay !!!!!!! no matter what facilities are put in to rectify this it will always create ill feeling amongst the workforce. A happy well paid workforce is productive.............a toxic environment and resentment creates low morale and counter productive work ethic.
I did almost 20yr and had a great time. Paper sheds then a s n. Who knows if p o still there chaces are i would still be there. I left the day the last boat sailed sad day that was. Living in Yorkshire now would be good to catch up with some of the lads. Before its tolate. Hope to be down. Later in yr. If enyone fancys a catch up
