One of the benefits of membership of the the Victorian Branch of the World Ship Society is receiving the monthly newsletter. Members can either have a b&w hardcopy posted to them or receive an electronic copy as a full colour PDF file via email.
A major section of each Newsletter is Around the Ports which looks at recent ships visiting the Victorian ports of Melbourne, Geelong, Hastings and Portland. The aim of Around the Ports is to provide details, and usually a photo, of each ship visiting the ports for the first time.
Below are the front covers for the last 6 month's copies of the Newsletter (which can be opened as full size PDF files by clicking on the picture) as well as a summary of the articles in each copy.
