bobby how you doin mate, i do remember sailing with you but cant remember which ship,ill have to dig out my discharge book,im not really sure if you will remember me as i think i sailed with you only breifly,funny how things stick in your mind as i remember you had gone to watch alex higgins play snooker and he kept asking you to go to the bar for him :) i sailed with milton mirage , davey mountain, robby pullen,and tommy ecclestone all quite a few times and all great lads,i was on a train to aberdeen about ten year ago to join an anchorhandling ship and looked up further down the carriage there was tommy ecclestone,i wasnt sure it was him as we all change a lot as we get older eh,anyway i got up to go for a slash and thought go and speak to him, when i came back tommy had got off the train at stonehaven,i found out later he was on a course in stonehaven,i was on a crane course about 12 year ago and this geordie lad said he drinks with davey mountain , anyway i gave him my tel number and when i got home davey phoned me, i was made up to have a yarn with him,but hears the bad news he was telling me that his wife had left him and run off with some young kid and gone somewhere down south,then he was telling me he slipped in his back kitchen fell backwards banged his head on a wooden bench and broke his neck! he now can only walk with calipers to help him,and will never work again,so i was real sorry to hear that as davey was smashing lad eh,i cant even ring him now as ive lost his number, i myself have been working offshore on the rigs the last 12 years as a crane op,im presently working out in azerbaijan, formerly russia, doing a month on month off,the money is good but i miss the sea , and still sit back with a dram and think about times gone by,but theres no ships about now eh, anyway bobby drop me a line mate let me know how you doin, here is my e-mail address. terry.l@myship.karoo.co.uk regards terry lewis

hi captain, yes your spot on davey was and still is a great guy, i sailed with davey maybe 4/ 5 times and he was always liked by all the crew,he was a really good seaman on deck,i like to think i was always pretty good when it came to splicing wire but davey showed me some good stuff how to splice wire to a thimble and keep it tight and not leave a jaw, splicing wire now is a forgotten art now,but i suppose you have to move with the times,being at sea wasnt just a job it was a way of life but i have no regrets , and what i loved was the comradship among us all was great but sadly nowadays thats all gone now.anyway take care captain and keep in touch, terry

I remember davy mountain and I am sorry to hear the news.good seaman

Has anyone got news on Dave hankinson as he paid off ill on the last trip on an esso tanker petro Fife to scrap.he was a good friend and I like to know how he is.

I think I was on Milton last trip,he was going to retire to Jamaica.

and I remember a lot of the old lads from my time 1980 -2003.

Now with BP where there still a few old esso personnel around.

take care
