Went to sea as Junior Sparky with IMRC in April 1970 - first ship Pacific Envoy (ex-Loch Ryan) with PSNC. Then onto Wheelsman of Rowbothams, Imperial Star, Harpagus (J & C Harrisons of London), Volnay (Harrisons Clyde), etc etc until ended up with Blue Star in 80's on Belfast built reefers, Hoegh Duke (Blue Star Managed) and finally Argentina Star (ex-Churchill and I think ex-New Zealand Star) before being made redundant in 1992. Moved up to East Yorkshire from Felixstowe in 1990 having got married. Employed by Group 4 as prison officer at HMP Wolds in East Yorkshire until Oct 2009 then took early retirement having had enough of the rat race. Consequently downsized house. Wife has been medically retired from her job. Both enjoying retirement with grandchildren keeping us busy.
