    Default Angola during Civil War

    Hi,
    Was anyone in here trapped in Angola during their civil war ?. I was on MV Eboe for 10 months in Lobito, very strange voyage indeed, but would not have missed it for anything. Grand merories.

  2. Thanks N/A, Ivan Cloherty, Captain Kong thanked for this post

    Was in Lobitos once but no civil war. Seemed a strange place for West Africa, the Portuguese put their own stamp of civilization on it. Cheers JS

    Hi Bill,
    I think you still owe me 10 Escudos from our time in Angola.

    I apologise in advance if I've posted this in the wrong thread. I'm looking for any information, pictures or anybody who knew my grandad. I believe he served in the Merchant Navy for Elder Dempster as a stoker. He lived in Liverpool and his name is Henry (Harry) Joseph Thompson, his date of birth is 6th September 1912. I believe he also participated in boxing when he served. Thanks and would appreciate any help. Emma.
