Welcome Robert I was also on 4 ore carriers at different eras. The Pennyworth and the Ravensworth ( Dalgliesh) and much later the Beechwood and the Cherrywood (john I Jacobs) the Ravensworth and the cherrywood being of the smaller versions and able to get into Port Talbot through the locks. You may have seen either of those ships regularly in Port Talbot. You may even also know Cindy of local fame. Cheers JWS

hi j sabourn
I remember one girl, after servicing all of the deck crowd, was taken off by ambulance, due to a over enlarged entrance that was left in a aggravating and bloody mess. don't remember her name though,
