    G'day Bernnard and welcome to the site. Do you by any chance have any dates to go with those ships? If so and you care to list them you may well get to hear from some who knew you. So sit back with a cold one and enjoy the voyage.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Life is too short to blend in.

    I cant remember you by name, I rememberthe names Newton and McNama I remember well Robbo and have photograph taken in the apprentices study in the Hornby Grange in 48/49 on my final trip befoe 2nd mates ticket. Others I rememember well were Derek Shaw, Canya Bevan and Lofty Wright from Bolton

    I stayed with Houlders for 40 years all my working life, Master in 1959 came ashore as Cargo Superintendent in 62, finally finishing in 1985 as Ship planner for the joint Houlders-Blue Star- Ropyal Mail Container Service. Since when have been happily retired in Pembrokeshire

    Wopuld be interested to hear what happened to all of them.
