After being a member for a few months have just found out that Michael James and I were together on Matra on U.S. trip Nov.1960-Jan. 1961. My photo of ship alongside at Panama City loading paper rolls was the clincher.
As Sen. 3RD Eng. on 12-4 I did not see many people!

Anyone else come across a former shipmate?
