Hi Hugh

Sorry but not a very gud quality foto. Taken from the book "Gas & Electricity colliers" by Chesterton & Fenton.

Fulham IX was sold in 1970 to Dimitrios Varverakis, Greece & r/n Eleistria. In 1978 in collision with Cypriot vessel Lokma I in the Gulf of Suez. Arrived Suez and sold to Egyption shipbreakers.

Tks Ruud for the rotation, 'fraid I'm getting lazy in my dottage. Must have been all that time in the southern hemisphere.

p.s. I've been allowed in from the garden for a few minutes and rumours of my premature demise are just ugly rumours!

Hugh,

I joined Lamport & Holts Rubens in Liverpool in April 1964. She had just returned from London where I believe she had been in collision with Fulham IX. Minor damage, but cant remember how it happened or whose fault it was.

Chris,

Thanks for that I will try and find out more.

Interesting that I have her final demise as scrapped after collision in suez 1978.
Must have been an unlucky ship.

Hi,
You seem to have this photo a;ready but the text may be useful. It is from book "Gas and Electricity Colliers" published in 1984. The last line of text reads " Sudan to Chalkis. 7.7.1978:Arrived at Suez , subsequently sold to Egyptian shipbreakers and broken up at Suez.
Hope you find this if use.
I sailed for 3 months in FIRESIDE in 1954 as a very junior R/O for Marconi International Marine before I was sent back deep-sea. - she was owned by North Thames Gas and managed by Stevie Clark.
I see you served in LYCAON - I served for four years with Alfie, mainly in the Glens out of London (GLENGARRY AND RADNORSHIRE). 73's JP

Hello John,

Thanks for the extra information. This thread has been very useful many nice shots of Fulham IX.

I served aboard LYCAON, 1982 as part of RN detatchment. My first experience of sailing with the MN. I was later to repeat the experience aboard OIL ENDEAVOUR a couple of years later. Good times!

Tabnab,
Any chance of you adding to your profile so that we can see the ships' names and dates that you were on them? Regards
