    I did Five months on the SUEVIC in 1955, a big hungry workhouse and a Battleship
    None stop fighting with the sailors and firemen.

    They would have been away in 68 first trip, brothers from Rowlands Gill, Terry was a non drinker and a bit scared of women, last I heard about him was that he was the biggest shagnasty on the Aussie coast.

    Hello Graham, I was an Engineer with SS&A from 1971 to 1982 and we used all those names you mention plus another - "Sail Saturday Afternoon". Despite using these names all the chaps I sailed with seemed to have a deep allegiance to SS&A and were proud of the ships and crews.

    I also had a memorable trip on the Suevic 63 into 64. It would take far too long to list all the experiences on that ship. Did not come home on her.

    J did a trip on the Suevic around about the same time, Captain Carroll was the skipper, quite a character wore a monocle which he had trouble keeping in place, he did have a DSO so looks can be deceiving.
