    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
