    Phil Purdie, Matt Beddow, Stuart Harper, Chris Cowell, Stuart Trought and myself are in touch and meet for a beer and catch up, and would like to reconnect with anyone else who was around at the time.

    Hi Stuart,
    I don't remember your name but as a BI cadet I sailed with Phil Purdie and Chris Cowell on the BI cadetship MS Chantala.
    It would be good to contact them. I have a photo of a group of us attending the Plymouth Navigation Ball. I am sure that would be a good thing to share.
    Regards,
    Peter Ward

    Hi
    Roger Sanders here I remember some of those names from 66-68,I was an engineering cadet with B&C and am still in touch with Andy Roots,Jan Colbe,Owen Waters and Bob Marshall, unfortunately Steve Hobbs who was the other guy in our 'cabin' in Portland Square passed away after a motorcycle accident over 20 years ago. I remember Stuart Harper from North Road hostel with Bill Currie as warden.
    Stayed deep sea until 1974 when I left and worked for British Rail in Holyhead for two years and then met an air stewardess in my local who I married in 1985. Now living in a small village near Brighton and running my own engineering company making powder processing equipment. Those 8/10 years in the MN were probably the best of my life until my son came along in 1994.
    Roger, I sailed with a deck cadet called Bob Marshall (Shell - Voluta) in 69/70, could it be same one? He could not have bin more than about 17ish? slightly built. I have a photo of him taking a break, the brush he had was nearly as big as him.

    I finally retrieved my password and have seen your posting. I retired last February and moved to a place north of Tucson, Arizona in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains. I donít think it is possible to get more opposite to the marine environment - desert, cactus and mountains.
    Since coming ashore I have worked and lived in eastern Europe, under the communists, Africa, the Persian Gulf and the north, south and now the southwest of the USA and at one time was responsible for business in Mexico and Canada. One would not necessarily think of Canada or the USA as a Brown Envelope environment but my experience proved otherwise. In Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, on those rare occasions that corruption was heard or talked about it tended to be on a large or even massive scale and totally out of my league. In Canada and the USA it was very common even all pervasive but small, bottles of good scotch, lunches, golf clubs, rounds of golf, plane tickets for wives, logo clothing etc. Many companies (even oil companies) allowed it but with say $100 limit.
    Covid has been a real pain in the a. I have had both shots, the booster and Omicron over Christmas. I have enough antibodies to protect me from a middle ages plague.
    All the best
