Reunion for Ex-Head Line Employees

The third reunion lunch of ex HEAD LINE employees, seagoing, shore, and office, will be held in the Ulster Reform Club, Royal Avenue, Belfast on Thursday 25 May 2017 when an estimated 60 people will be attending.

The HEAD LINE Steamship Company was also known as the Ulster Steamship Company, G Heyn & Sons Ltd and incorporated Cargo Forwarding Ltd and Samuel Stewart & Co Ltd.

Previous reunions were held in 2004 and 2013 and were a huge success.

Unfortunately the development of containerisation resulted in the demise of the conventional cargo vessels with the ultimate conclusion that HEAD LINE vessels were obsolete. However, there are many fond memories held of those days and a hunger to meet old friends.

Invitations will be sent to known ex-employees but enquiries are welcome from anyone interested.  More details from Dessie Cowan on Mob 07940 834 184 or email: cowandes@aol.com.
