    Default Roonagh Head

    Hi Robo, It's getting harder and harder to put names to faces, I'm trying to get a visual of you. I was on the Roonagh at that time, one of four apprentices, there was Brian Kane, Andy Niblock, Brian something or other and myself, Raymond Seaye. I do remember the Red Dean, I think Green was captain. Were you tall with blond hair?. Do you remember Desi Cardbury he was about 4th or5th engineer, anyway he has long since passed away/died very young. We almost lost our bosun that trip after he fell down the hatch from the tween deck No. 2 hold. Anyhow it's nice to see there are still Head Line men still alive and kicking and I've been in touch with a few lately. Keep in touch, Raymond Seaye

    Cheers John, Made an attempt to upload old photo of Ramore Head using image shack. The photo shows in cargo ships but first one is too small. Tried 2nd one which was slightly bigger. What is correct size or url to use so that when you click on photo it gives you a reasonable shot.
    Secondly how can I delete the first photo??.
    If I can get this right I can post some notorious old Head Line faces.lol
    tks

    Default Pics

    Hello Brian S

    PS If you need any other help on uploading Pics just holler!

    The set Size is 800 x 600 which is a good size and allowable on site!

    If you download and use the free Program called Irfranview this will make it a lot easier to resize any Pic for uplaoding to Gallery!

    Default Coffee stains

    Hi Brian, Good to see you have some old photo's tucked away in your tea/chest. But the coffee stains,they wouldn't have happened in your Head/Line days as coffee was a luxury on board any Head/boat then, you must have had it stashed away from us, never mind all is forgiven. Brian there's an interesting book published in 1990 called HEAD LINE/ G.HEYN@SONS LTD By W.J.HARVEY] its really worth getting as it has the full history of the company along with photos of the fleet from year one,finishing with an old Brigadier writing a short story about his round trip on the CARRIGAN HEAD. All the best for now. Raymond
