    Life Story of a Merchant Navy Electrician - Noel Murray

    11 Comments by Brian Probetts (Site Admin) Published on 2nd April 2018 10:30 PM
    Hi, my dad, Noel Murray, was a merchant navy electrician from 1958 to 1982.
    He died in 2014 but wrote his life story which Iíve now published as a blog.
    It could be of interest to anyone with an interest in life at sea in that period.

    Nicely done Dave.

    FYI the link to Home/Index from the url you have supplied, does not work? There is "/?order=asc" appended to it, and just takes you to a blank page.

    To Dave Murray. I really enjoyed reading your Dadís blog. A full and varied life and career, which must make you proud. I went to sea eight years later than him, and was on several of the same ships. I donít remember our paths crossing, certainly not on ďdeep sea trips ď, but possibly in U.K. ports when coastal staff came and went. Like your dad, I was on the Manipur, Mawana, Macharda, Luminetta, and also served on various other Brocklebank and Moss Tankers as cadet and progressed through the deck officer ranks. Later my career took me elsewhere, however itís the earlier years at sea that provide the most interesting and nostalgic experiences. Thanks for the most interesting publication. Regards, Murray Sabiston Dunn
