    Hi old sea salt I too sailed with Federal Steamship Company 63/65 the Essex and Middlesex it was a good company to work for being on deck we worked plenty of overtime. When I joined the Middlesex early 64 I was told when signing on its a long trip approx 9 Months we were sailing from N/Z /Aust/to American ports eastern side and up to Montreal Canada they call this the MANZ run at the end of 9 Months guess what we were rechartered and signed off in Montreal after spending 17 months away from home my mistake I should have read the small print on signing on form. Was talking to fellow deckie later mentioned about being away along time he said thatís nothing he was on a Ropner tramp ship get this 34 Months before he signed off poor soul. Michael Montgomery
