    Re Buries Markes
    I was very interested in reading the above article, as my grandfather was the captain of the LA Cordillera at that time, he was also the captain of the LA Pampa. My grandfather was Captain Matthew Frame, and I have an article that was written at the time with a photo of him with the wrens.

    Hiya David,
    I served onboard Tsuru Arrow 1978 thru to La Cordillera 1981. Best time of my Merchant Navy life. Wish I had kept track of the many friends I made there. Sadly no fotos either.
    Wud like to apply for this "Secret" Membership.

    Hi, my name is Phil Ellacott and joined BM in 1968 as deck cadet on La Estancia and left in 1984 after serving as Mate for the last five years on Norman Lady. A lot of the intervening years spent on chemical tankers and Gearbulk ships. I would be pleased to hear from anybody who was around at this time.

    Hi David, my name is Phil Ellacott. I'd like to join your Face Book page, is it still live? Can't find it on FB! I worked for Buries Markes from 1968 - 1984 and sailed on many of the ships, the last one being The Norman Lady!

    Hi Paddy, did you serve on La Hortensia on the long voyage from April 1962? I served on the Montcalm in 1961!
