Joined Shell Tankers as an Eng Cadet at Poplar Technical College, London. Obtained Seconds Ticket in 1978.
Can't supply exact dates as first wife destroyed my seamans card, discharge book and seconds ticket :-(

Left the sea in 1979/80 to work with GEGB, transferred to nuclear side of the business, retrained as nuclear operations eng and ended up as Shift Charge Engineer at Sizewell. Also acted as technical expert for EU in North West Russia. Got fed up and resigned and now live and work on a farm high up in the Andes in Argentina. And extremely happy too!

Thanks for the welcome Tony.
My home is a long way from the sea but finding this forum has really been a godsend for me. As I look through the posts they bring back many memories for me.
