Default Film about life on EAC-ships in 1967 & 1968

This link takes you to a Danish website which contain a film about the life at sea on board the East Asiatic Company's ships trading in the far east in 1967-1968 and also shows many of the "famous" places & "institutions" that all the sailors in that trade at that time just had to visit, see or experience in the various harbours and countries no matter which country they came from them selves......
The film is lasting 1 hour and 20 minutes and without any conversations/communications so everybody should be able to "understand" what the different contents is about...
So if you want to go back to 1967-1968 and re-live/re-visit the sailors life in the harbours/places in the Far East then you should follow my link and see the film.... it is made from many different film clips taken by the sailors on board the EAC-ships : M/S Sargodha - M/S Basra - M/S Busuanga with the rolling film cameras from that time where the technology wasn´t as advanced as it is today..... All the clips has been put together in natural order so the visited places are shown in the same order as the planned route was from Denmark to the Far East and back again...

I hope you will take the time off to watch these historical seamen's living their daily life on-board and ashore back then....
The younger sailors of today can also find joy in this film, perhaps they will afterwards be able to better understand us , the sailors of the old school and the old times....

Kind regards

The pictures are either from my own collection and/or from the archives on the Bangsbo Museum in Frederikshavn in DK and/or from the Danish Maritime Museum in Elsinore, DK. Dates, locations and photographers are unknown factors if they are not specifically mentioned.
