Hi David welcome to the site others will welcome you also. The only one I knew from Athol tankers was a chief engineer I sailed with in the 60"s from North Shields, sailed with him when I was mate o the Pennyworth and the Warkworth in the 60"s. See your from Fremantle just up the road from me in Singleton. The chiefs name was Candiotis and was from North Shields Regards JWS

My name is Doug Bay- I joined Athel Line in June '65 joining the old AthelDuke in Falmouth.
Stayed as a "company man" through several other Athel vessels till finishing on the Sovereign
as C/O in 1974. Swallowed the anchor and worked ashore ever since!
The Athel reunion is in York this year (2018) - look forward to seeing you there!

Douglas I sailed with a Cheng ex Athel line but may have been before your time by a couple of years. He was I think 2nd. Engineer with Athel line. Was involved in some fire on board one of their ships and burned pretty bad on the body. I knew him on three other ships of a different company commencing in 1964. His name was Candiotis and he lived in North Shields. Or Preston Village if you are more conversant with the area. But as said before your time by a few years. As to post 1 may even know you David in another walk of life, especially if you visit another establishment in Fremantle, which visit often. In fact was there all day last Saturday. Cheers to you both. JWS....
