    #17. Deep sea, knowing how proficient you are on tracing back historical facts as well as a few more on this site , I would take it as a favour if you and others could assist me on helping a third person on tracing his nautical forebears in his family tree. He has been a good friend for many years and only recently found out how unwell he was, and would obviously like to complete the task before too late which is very close apparently. He has sent away to his brother in NZ for how far their enquires have gone and hopes to get the info.back over the next weekend, so will supply as receive. Good friends are hard to come by and is the least I could do under the circumstances. Cheers JS

    Hello JS
    I know that Billy will help all he can ,as will myself and a few others as you say!
    So please go ahead and supply any Info you have and what it is you are seeking.
    Full name and possible Year and place of Birth will be a good start!
    Cheers


    NB Please start a new Thread with the info, as we can then not mix it with this Thread!
    Thanks
    Cheers

They seemed to forget all the good work and free research I did for families looking for information on those killed at sea during the war years..... There loss!!

    Think I must have upset some one on SN some years back.
    I was informed that my comments about 'alternative females' was not suitable comment for the site.
    Gave them the DCM and never looked back.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I too got hate emails sent to me and my threads were deleted. I did lodged a complaint to their management and told them I'd hate for the govt. to become aware of their racist and misogynistic attitudes. Telling them I wouldn't hesitate to go to the authorities with a formal complaint to be investigated.
    That did cause a flurry of someone trying to settle my "ruffled" feathers etc. offering all sorts of excuses and denying the emails. Obviously they were a bit taken aback by my assertive stance, I wasn't going to back down so they shut up.
    After that I just haven't bothered to go back.

    Mine and no doubt all our thanks go to Brian for producing the site.
    No doubt at personal expense and effort.
    But it brings great pleasure to many, it revives memories of times past, is good for research and it gives those who know little about who or what we were some insight into our being.

    It has also been a source of learning for many such as I, who being in Catering knew little of deck or engine, my thanks to those who have through their input advanced my knowledge of both.

    It has also created a site where new friendships have developed, old ones revived, and at times a greater understanding of who we are.

    But having been at sea has made us a more resourceful, more creative and better suited for shore side life than those who never sailed.
    We began at the Vindi and other such establishments as boys, but came ashore as fully grown men with our heads held high.

    We are the last of a breed who gave their all, and at times their very being, so that others may benefit from those sacrifices.
    We worked in conditions no one now would understand and certainly never allow, we toiled for long hours for sometimes little reward but enjoyed every minute of it.

    So now through the efforts of Brian we relive it all daily with great relish,
    Thank you Brian for all you have done for us.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    An acquired taste, alas a site that has gone downwards in tolerance and morals, others may have a different opinion. They have a section called Stormy Weather, in which a select few feel it is their right to insult all and sundry to a degree that had they done it in the messroom they would have found themselves on #5 hatch or perhaps swimming, they call it banter, banter it is not, but basically they are cowards hiding behind aliases and a keyboard. A pity because there are some good informative members who seem to know their trade and their hobbies. Incidentally you don't have to stray into Stormy Weather to get insulted.

    We have differences of opinion on this site, but we seem to sort them without being malicious
