I'm pleased that you enjoyed my "potted" history of Tor Line and that it brought back memories for you.

I actually thought that the mods might have deleted it based on the fact that it's not aviation related. At the time of writing it I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to do but I enjoyed writing it and I'm pleased that you enjoyed reading it.

I could write similar stories about many other shipping company's from the past, but this is not the place.

Although aviation is a huge passion of mine, the shipping industry is probably more of a passion of mine having been involved in it for the last 37 years.

In future though I will stick to aviation on PPRuNe and in particular on the Stansted Airport History and Nostalgia thread considering that I am the person who started it😉
