Terry , On foreign flag boats I used to give the skippers my discharge book instead of my passport , in case there was ever any reason for a quick exit , sure enough I left a Liberian tanker after a little dispute , and forfeited my discharge book . I did write to try and reclaim it but drew a blank. I still have my red ID card.

AJ , My trip in 67 was one of the most memorable in my life , from the crowd(scouse) to the 6 weeks in Taikoo dry dock Hong kong. Signed on as a firebar , and discharged donkey greaser with delusions of grandeur.

Hi Mike , I definitely on in 67 or 68 , but only did the one trip B/head-Coryton and back ,more under water than on top.Got a bollocking off the Old Man for making smoke while changing burners in port. She was the only steam up and downer I was ever on,and got off her in the lock in B/head

Mike
As you can see I have traced your identification discharge number.
This is the number that was on your book.

thanks very much for researching that for me, as you can see from my posts I ended up on foreign flags and my passport was the ID required , and I think I left my Discharge book on the Dea Maris in about 1970 after a short but eventful month or so. Thanks again , Mike

Hello Mike G
That was the reason for me asking about where you hailed from,as I had seen on the NA Site that there were a few with that Surname.

However it is good that Mike Hall did that research,and has been able to get your correct Number from the info you supplied.

Makes the Crew list look better when all the details are there!
Thanks Mike for doing that!
Cheers
