    Well I'm trying to recreate the Bibby Gazette, and as you know it only dealt with two specific periods, Spring and Autumn.

    If you put your service together I'll add it to the site I am creating.

    I'll post a new thread asking Bibby members for their details and see what the response is like.

    You and I were together on Warwickshire up to October 1975. Remember we paid of in Kuwait, I was the R/O and had my wife with me.
    I'd love to have the names of the other guys on that voyage if you can remember any of them.
    Best Wishes

    Hi Allen

    I'm sure I remember you and your good lady if I'm right then I may still have some photo's of your wife holding some of the Gilly Gilly Man's chickens in the lounge, whilst we where wait in Port Said to go through the canal. If I've got it right then Rob Lowe was the 1st Mate and Willy Turner was the 2nd Engineer, the electrition was nick named EGOR, If I'am on the right track let me know and I'll rack my brains for more names.
