A long shot as I have searched Gallery! Looking for a photo of tanker Halcyon Breeze - 3rd. mate on her from Oct 1965 - April 1966 - first tanker & a big (literally) change from Blu Flu! Anybody remember her or her rescue involvement in Red Sea around March '66 - north of Hells Gates - collision between a Swedish ship and Niarchos tanker at 22.00 hrs? Boy was that a fun night - first ship on scene and a sad story of how not to launch your own lifeboats in a Force 5 in the dark!
Regards to all you nostalgic ex "good times"seafarers. rowie
