Wondering if any of the N.Z.S.Co lads can recall the name of the Engineer Superintendent in Liverpool? And the 3 "Ds" Surveyors?

Looking at old communications and came across your name.
Think I may have sailed with you on the Nottingham in the early
50's. If you are still active would liker to hear how you are.
At that time the master was Capt. Alderman, C/E Mr. Kennedy

Dorset Coasting July 1965
Paparoa August 1965 to January 1966
Medical Leave

Fair selection of Vessels Ian. I was on the Paparoa in the late fifties.
She was at that time a very "Happy Ship".Thanks for reply
