    Donald, I served with Esso from 1970 to 73 as 2nd cook & baker and can remember the Cambria running aground in Bandar Abbass. I was on the Caledonia at the time I ended up cook/steward on coastal but left after they docked me 7 days leave which had been agreed with the union, calling them 'waiting days' something that had never happened as I was allocated a new ship at the end of every leave. I had some good times and remember sailing with Dougie Denholm, for some reason he is the only name I can remember from the number I served with.

    [QUOTE=Captain Kong;201188]I have just been reading the posts on this ESSO thread,
    It appears that all of my posts have disappeared.
    ESSO was the best ever Company to work for. good pay and at the end when offered early retirement as they were getting out of ship owning, the severance pay was incredible, like winning the Lottery, after 25 years and spending over

    GBP150,000 per year. Were you the owner of Esso?

    Hi Jim
    quote,,,,,,,,,,,after 25 years and spending over 150,000, ..........[maybe should have place a comma behind the 150,000 ],.,..... on world cruises every year,,,,,,,,
    I meant I had spent over 150,000 since I left ESSO 25 years ago, and still have more than I started with from the Big Pay Off.
    The ESSO Financial advisors were fantastic on where to invest our money, I know that some who had been with ESSO a lot longer and really got Big Money became millionaires with their investments.
    Cheers
    Brian.

    Hi Steve. I sailed on the Westminster s cadet or 5/E in about 1964/5 with a 4/E called Jack Caller (could it be Calor?). He was a good lad. Used to sunbathe naked on the monkey island with a sock to avoid sunburn! The ship was a workhorse but the engineers were great blokes. Happy memories. Glad Jack made it to J2/E. The C/E was from Devon, as was the S2/E, relieving chief Terry Roberts. Also sailed with Geordie Johnny Locker, Willy Igoe from Manchester, J2/E Barry Stott, 5/E Alex Young from Scotland. Ever heard of them?

    Regards

    Dave Light
