Earnie Hone was c
    Hoeflich steward,I only sailed on 6 ships but the crew of the Lynton was the best I sailed with,friends would not believe me when I said we were 50 plus days at sea towards the end,Miri seemed a million miles away ,at sea so long we were on the lime juice but the cook from Hull worked wonders with the stores.all in all a cracking trip ,had xmas in Vancouver ,the local people inVited crew members into their home fantastic times were had .I love the area where you live and holiday on the Lincs coast every year ,nice to hear from Chapmans good health to you Dave Moore

    Dave the way you went was the shortest, it would have taken you two days longer via the Panama Canal, plus transit time, I worked it out for someone else on the site last year even giving them the latitude and Longitude of Miri

    Hi Brian, I did my first trip on the Ingleton from May 1960. Senior Apprentice was a guy called Dave (Lofty) Veitch. After two trips on her I joined the Amberton and finished my time on her. Sailed as 3rd mate on Norton and Lynton.

    Think I put this on a previous post. I went on board the old Geneton about 1954 in BA. To see a friend Charlie Briggs one of the apprentices there. I was on the Avonmoor at the time who Cappy thinks was a wreck. I came off the Geneton thinking how lucky I was to be on such a fine vessel The Geneton had an open wheelhouse the chartroom being under it. The helmsmen were there 24 hours per day in all weathers. No carpenter that was the apps job , soundings, battening down with canvas tarps and the numerous other jobs a chippy had. Someone told me years later that Charlie who I went to see finished up as Harbour master at Blyth. Cheers JWS.

    Hi Arthur, looks like we served on the same ships at different times.I was 3rd Mate on Lynton 64 to 65. Carlton for drydock in South Shields 64. Riverton in Leith for stand by .. Served my time on Ingleton and Amberton from 60 to 64. Apps with me were: Lofty Vietch on Ingleton. Ian Smith, Dennis Cross, Raymond Scurr, Brian Broadhead and Eleazor Owen on Ambo. Hope you recognize some of these names.
