    What a name to call a ship . La is also masculine I believe . I can imagine how and what sort of nickname she had , or even a person who had problems pronouncing French words . JS

    cappy Yr.#23 re MABEL WARWICK.
    You're right about the white'swastika' on the funnel, cappy.She was the fourth- to- last ship built at Grays,W.Hartlepool before they closed down in 1961.
    She had a sister-the JOYA McCANCE

    Great to hear from you Paddy. I Kept in touch with Ian Burnett for a few years but nobody else. You probably remember Martin Phipps. He and I used to relieve each other as mate on Norman Lady until her last fateful voyage. After Norman Lady was handed over to the Norwegians in 1984 I didn't fancy going back to chemical tankers so decided it was time to pack up. Would you believe I became the 'man from the Pru' for the next five years followed by sixteen years with South West Water. As others have probably found working ashore seems very mundane after many years at sea. In 1996 Angela and I moved to Spain. We don't live on the coast, but in a cave house in the foothills of Andalucia, and we love it. I'm afraid we find the news from UK rather depressing lately, and hope our four grandchildren are not brought up to be Woke snowflakes. I think as we get older it is more difficult to accept the changes. Anyway Paddy it was terrific to hear from you. Obviously we all knew of your terrible accident at the time. Did you not work in the London office for a while after your recovery. Let me know what you been up to since. Kind regards, Phil
