    Hi Lin

    I remember Luanda and Lobito very well. You may have seen an initial post, when we discovered the site, from my husband Ron McSorley who was Radio Officer on the Falaba at that time. Hope you remember him too.

    I think you were married to the 4th engineer, but neither Ronnie nor I can remember his name.

    Glad that our newsletter has led to a writing career for you. Look forward to seeing more of your literature.

    As you may remember I had a somewhat traumatic experience on leaving the Falaba to go home via Luanda, as it was full war mode then. But as my dad (long gone now) always said “no experience is ever wasted” and even that has stood us in good stead during our lives.

    Really pleased you remember our time in Lobito with such happy memories and the story lives on.

    Love to hear from you. Can you reply to me on here?

    Pat McSorley

    I did reply and left it on thread. I was the “Pat” in Lobito with you. My husband was ?Ron McSorley, Sparks or R/O. Wasn’t sure if I should leave my email address here, so didn't. Don’t have What’s App or Skype. Is it safe to leave email here?

    Nice to know you still remember me from all those years ago. Look forward to hearing from you? We live in Spain now. Pat and Ron

    Ron you could always contact Lin by Private Message or E Mail via this site. Just click on her name at the top of her post and her membership page will open. A menu will be seen on the left hand side where there are options in the menu for you to send a private message or E Mail, Hope this helps you to get in touch.

    It is not safe for members to publish their Private E Mail addresses as this very often attracts unwanted attention to them.

    Hi Susan,
    I used to live there too until we decided to retire to Tasmania. We felt the Peninsula was getting a little too busy for us. We recently went back for a visit and this seemed to be true. Though our friends there kept saying we should come back LOL
    Enjoy the site.
