Hi there everyone, this is my first post on this site. I am a retired Merchant Navy Radio Officer, I retired in 2004 but from the Offshore sector in the North Sea, but prior to that, my employers were Siemans & Co, (Radio Company) a short stay with Marconi, then direct ermployed 1965 to 1970 with B&C, then 1970 to 1983 Bibby Line, 1983 to 1988 Denholms (Various Companies within the Group) and from 1988 to 2004 Various Oil related companies on DSV's. Semi-Subs, Jack-Ups, Accommodation Barges and Oil Platforms. Yes I had a good run for my money and I enjoyed my 40 years + at sea.
My name is Tony Fell, anyone out there who can remember me give me a shout, was also involved with the ROU and later NUMAST from 1966 to 2004.

Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, Tony.
Plenty of us around as you'll find out once you find your way around the ship.
We have a radio room deeply set in the "good old days" without the need to keep watches.
Enjoy the trip.
