Ask your Dad or Bob if they recall the story of the lad taken by a crocodile.
I was with UTC at the time and a story was going around that a young guy was swimming when he was attacked and killed by a croc. It was one of the Overseas Towage tugs but Im not sure which one. Apparently the vessel was anchored up some West African Creek and later had a serious fire on board. Perhaps Jim Barnes or other OTS lads may recall the story.

sorry mate didnt know the story but knew the Neptunia sister ship to the Salvonia had had a fire just before I joined OTS. Sorry when OTS was no more and I had to move on was on the Britonia when she was sold to Decca in Gt Yarmouth. visited her after she had been converted to echo sounding for oil exploration, they gutted her to install all sorts of sounding equipment, sad but she kept going for a while god bless her (Cloud)
