    Yes I miss Lou too and all our shipmates who have crossed the bar like Alf. Long may they be remembered. I also miss a certain Liverpool member very much, my mate Jim. I am so very glad there is a place like this site where they will be remembered, we were shipmates by virtue of our love of the sea and our loyalty to each other, many of us also sailed together, long may that continue between all of us that are still here and able to talk to each other, members of a time gone now but never to be forgotten.

    There is something about the comradeship between those who have been to sea that cannot compare with that ashore.
    Maybe the fact we had to rely on each other in tough times, no where else to go for assistance.
    Maybe the fact we had to work together at time sunder difficult circumstances and with people you may not have liked.
    Unlike being ashore where you can knock off and go home when times are tough, we had to stick it out and get the job done.
    We had to work as a team be we engineers, catering or deck. All part of the same team.
