Jimmy Galloway's Picture Gallery.
I met Jim during the first time I worked on the Australis in the summer of 1973, I tried to keep a wide berth of this Master-at-Arms as he was good at handing out fines to the crew for all their misdemeanors. He also knew my brother Ray who was the ships Entertainment Officer along with the late John L. Sullivan.
Jimmy "served time" with Chandris Lines between 1966 and 1978. He worked on the Queen Frederika, Australis and the Ellinis. Jims post was Master-at-Arms, and on the Ellinis he held the position of Inventory Officer. After working for Chandris Jim left the company and worked for British Rail, based in London. In recent years Jim has moved to the west country and has worked in store security.
In his personal life Jim has been married twice and has two daughters and a grand-daughter. He is now semi-retired, having had a heart bypass in 1999. That just goes to show that Jim wasn't heartless after all!!

Many thanks to Jim Galloway for his contribution to the site.
Regretfully I am "running down" the S. S. Australis website due to increasing family and health issues.
I may occasionally update the site if I receive a great story/photos from ex-crew only
, if it is a new contact.
I know there are still stories to share from ex-crew all over the world, who haven't yet been in touch.
I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from numerous passengers and crew over many years.
A HUGE THANK YOU.
