    Default Anyone remember Fred Lambert ?

    Hello All

    Fred Lambert was my uncle and I'm trying to piece together his years spent with NZSCo. I know he was 2nd Engineer on the Ruahine in 1957 he was also on the Rangitoto as 2nd. I remember visiting him onboard when he was in Liverpool, he was Chief then on the Haparangi and several other ships through the 1960's & 70's.
    Any information would be much appreciated.

    Hello
    Fred was my uncle. He was born in Liverpool around 1930. As far as I know he worked for NZSCo all his working life. I remember visiting him onboard various ships when he was in Liverpool during the 1960's and 70's. He was Chief Engineer then. I also have photos of him from 1957 when he was 2nd on board the Ruahine and the Rangitoto.

    Thanks for contacting me.
    Regards
    John Lambert

    There would be no actual Merchant Navy Records kept if he was still at Sea after 1972 which looks like the case!

    I did my first 3 trips with Fred when he was 2nd Engr. on the Ruahine. That was Sept. 1956--late 57. I was 4th then 3rd electrician, Then I went on to the Paparoa for 2yrs before going to Bowaters (for a lot more of the folding stuff). I'm not much good at this keyboard stuff but I would be pleased to phone you from here in "oz", we have a GREAT Deal with our Telco and I spend lots of time speaking to U.K. If you send me your Ph. No.,I'll be in touch. George Crebbin, (there's a few of us in the Merseyside Phone Book)

    In 1964 I was inspired to go to sea by an ex NZSCo chief engineer, His name was Harry Nicholson and at that time was ashore working in a power station on the Tyne. He gave me all his "Reeds" text books so I was dead keen after going thro them.
    He recommended that company as being a good outfit and traded to a nice place (NZ) so I applied, didnt get so much as an acknowledgement, tried Ben Line next, same result; ended up with Shell and have had no regrets about that company.
