My name is Ulf I. Gustafsson & I am working on my PhD-thesis which includes the former whaling station at Prince Olav Harbour and the companies which operated it. I would be very interested in getting in contact with anyone who would be willing to share information about the persons behind the companies, and anything relating to the activities in South Georgia (technology, ships, employees, working conditions aso)

I have myself visited, and stayed at Prince Olav Harbour for a period of three weeks in 2009, during which me and my collegues surveyed and mapped the entire area.

Hope to hear from you!
Kind regards

I believe I am the last apprentice Fitter from Shields Engineering, leaving in 1962, to go to sea as an Engineer with Clan Line, and I also have the complete list of all the vessels they Engined, except for war builds,
At the same time I also have a large photo collection of the Yard as it was and how it is now, and the some of the ships, including the C.O J and the G D I. and I suspect these were also Sealers

Diesel catcher COJ was defintiely south in the 1911/12 season as I had an envelope from South Georgia postmarked February 7 1912 addressed to Mrs R.Lee, 3 Adamsons Buildings, Walker Place, North Shields.
Hope this helps.
