    Hi Chris,
    looks like we were on the Lancastrian at the same time, to be quite honest i dont recall who was who on the ship, iwas a jos at the time. I dont really recall where we went, except it would have been to the Med, regards Keith Tindell

    I was in the Patrician in May 1963 coasting. The bosun asked me if I wanted to go deep sea in her, but I didnt like the sailor's accomodation, right above the steering flat, and it was a steam steering engine, so the racket was unbelievable.
    Anyway, I turned it down , and the next thing I heard was that she sank off Gibrallter after a collision with a US ship,( 'Steel Exporter' I seem to recall.)
    A year or so later I did a trip in the Grecian. I remember little about it, but there was always lots of boozing going on

    I joined the France on 6 Oct1960 that was on the Monday. We signed on on the prom deck and the shipping master tried to rub the seamen' s reform stamp out of my book i grabbed it out of his hand and told him he leaves things as they are, and never ever pull a stunt like that again!i thought he was going to choke he turned purple.

    Hi Charlie, I have just found my discharge book, a bit tatty now and falling to pieces.
    I signed on the France same time. and paid off again on 25 October. 1960. I think she had a Southern Irish crew on board for the strike.The Bosun was an Irish man who had taken George Britains job.I was AB then.
    I still have my card...........here it is.............
    I think most opf the Committee are dead now, My mate Peter Barlow died young, Paddy Neary went back to Belfast not longer after he came out of gaol and then he died

    Cheers Brian.

    Hi Charlie yes we did sail together, only 51 years ago,
    No there were no Irishmen in the crowd , only the Irish Bosun stayed on, I had many a go at him, George Britain was the regular Bosun but didnt come back. .
    When the strike started the CPR Shore gang took her to Cork and then an Irish crowd took her out and they got off when the strike finished
    Peter Barlow was a fireman, I first sailed with him on a Shell T2 tanker in 1954 and he was a real good fellow. When the strike was on his mother had a Canny near Vauxhall Road and his Mother used to feed us for free during the strike.
    Peter died in the earl 60s I think he had some kind of Liver disease.
    My younger brother was also with us he was a deck boy so I always made him do my look out on the 8 to 12 at night so I could go in the Pig.He didnt like it cos the other fella never relieved him either. I was in the same cabin as Chatty Matty, the messman.
    Cheers
    Brian.
