Custom: That is the way the mop flops
A nice selection of ships and a lot of memories that where gained while the merchant Navy was our oyster. We had the best bloody years of it all I reckon. Pity technology and containers had to stuff it all up for those that followed. Les

Hi,Iwas on the San Edmundo 19 /6/61 until26/4/62. A good newish ship and crew.The only fly in the ointment was the old n,one 'Capt.

Davis,he started at sea as galleyboy and knew all the dodges,was a bit of a woozer into the bargain,at tot time therewas water to go into

the grog!.Keep Well,

Len.
