Hi
Havent been on here for some time,not because i didnt like it,but just was so busy on another site when doing Moderating.Now resigned!

Anyway here is a list of the few Ships i served on with UCL in the late 50's

Started off on the Dunnottar Castle
then on to the Wincherster,Stirling,Warwick Castles!
as Asst First Class and Tourist Class Steward.

Had many a great time whilst at Sea,just a pity that i left after only a short spell,youth and sillyness i guess.
But then entered the RAF as Wireless Op at Bridgenorth.

Did many other types of work,too many to list here!
So thats it for me not much i know,but proud to have been part of the great Merchant Navy.
Cheers

Good to see you back on site mate. It is not the length of service but the quality of it that counts as it was a short space of time when we had the world by the short and curlies and has since gone by the wayside but fecking glad that we managed to grab it by the throat and shake the hell out of it while we could.

I find this site compared to others like signing of a liner and signing onto a tramp. To many crew members trying for status where as cargo ships seemed to be just muck in and bear it. I always did like the chatty but happy ships hence the reason for being out here. Made the fatefull mistake of signing on a single berth modern ship where the only blisters one got was on the finger tips pushing fecking buttons all day.

Bull. I think he deserves a double DR in his book as all the cockery has piled up in the sink since he went AWOL. Looks like one look at the work out in that is in store and he has headed to Mountains with a Blue look about them. Would have thought the two of them Lilacman and Geoff would have hit it of as both live in Deliverance country with the banjo players LOL. Anyway there is a cold can waiting for you mate so long as that bloody bloke across the ditch has not got there first.
