    No mate, no camera but have had one in both ends at times.
    I told the operator if he was doing both to do the top end first, he obliged.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    The UK Society held reunions every year since the first one in Bristol in 1985, in NZ, we had reunions every alternative year with the Australian Branch till it eventually closed about 20 years ago, and many Australians joined the NZ Branch.

    Thank you Jamie for the info. Very sad. Was an Eng. Cdt with SS&A from '71 to '75 and then sailed deepsea until '82 when I was transferred to the Houlders rigs in the N.Sea.
    I never made it to any of the reunions and now I never will - kicking myself for not taking the opportunity while it was still there.
    Sailed on some good ships with great chaps and had some absolutely marvellous times all over the world. We were very lucky.

    Hi, Can you kindly let me know when the next reunion will take place.

    Many thanks

    Was on Kiwi crewed tanker Hamilton in ‘73. Port was Marsden Point, actually the refinery.
    Just a few miles Whangarei up the water.

    Just had a look at book and was 1974 was on the coast there, flew down from Banda Mashur to Newcastle NSW to join the Laurelwood from the Hollywood , was probably the other ship of the trio you were on . There was one British, one Kiwi, and one greek when I was there guess who were the best paid. We were only allowed 12 weeks on the coast , I always used to refer to the refinery as Whangerai as the few times ashore there was the place we made for. If you are from Tauranga did you or do you know Clive Spencer or have I asked before ? JS
