Many Thanks

Hi Janine,
This is a late reply to your question about your grandad. I sailed with Stan Pascoe in 1975 when he was chief engineer on the Globtik London. A fine man. He gave me £200 one time as I went on leave to buy him an engagement ring in the UK for his Japanese fiancee. This I did, and when he left the ship in Japan he was due to marry the Japanese girl.
Regards, Ernie Lamb (formerly C/O, Globtik Tokyo)

I've just seen your reply, I would love to see those photos. My dad is still alive but in poor health, he still talks about it to this day and misses being at sea. Please get in touch! Thank you and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Best wishes

Oldfield, Bill Smith, Pete Gregory, P. Fuller, G. Adams, Geoff Peacock, W. Reid, I. Bryant, Wee Jimmy Henderson, Colin Blyth, J. Cliff, M.

I can picture a few more but just cannot recall their names, like the Welsh pumpman (Taffy ?) who stayed on the Tokyo I think for well over a year so as to reclaim income tax. Another pumpman, big Dave ?. Another bosun, from London area, well spoken guy.


The last couple of years I didn't keep the records going and I regret that now because there are a lot more names I haven't included.. but, maybe someone who reads this may be able to add to the list.

So.. how many of the above can you remember ??

Cheers for now

Vic
Hi Vic, my name is John Dawson and I was did a couple of voyages on Globtik Tokyo from 1978 until the ships were sold in 1979. They were great ships and I really enjoyed sailing on them. I remember you well, not only as a fellow native of Wirral but because when I was a steward looking after your cabin there was a notable lack of photographs of your wife but several of two of the cutest Yorkshire Terriers you could hope to see. I have a few more names for your list which may be of use to you and other members. The two assistant stewards I remember were Phil Upton and Brian Robbitt who had been promoted from catering boy the trip that I joined. I became second cook after the first trip and relieved a lad from Liverpool named Keith Bigland. The chief cook I worked with was a Wlsh chap called Lenny although his surname escapes me. Our galley boy was a lad from Fleetwood called Craig Goldsmithwho liked to be called Billy. That became academic though when, because of his permed hair, big Dave Bryan called him Bubbles and the name stuck. Tim West hated but then, he did call the skipper an anal orifice or words to that effect. I remember Billy Potts had a little mate called Ronnie Efford who I never recall seeing sober. The Irish bosun you mention was Paddy Grainger who sometimes brought his wife Yolande with him. The two chief stewards I sailed with were John Baddely who had his wife Midge with him and John Brown. I remember a lot more of the lads by their christian names but that's it. I left the Merchant Navy in 1983 having spent four years with Panocean Anco, My last voyage being on the Anco Charger to the Falkland Islands during the war down there. I went back to college, then to university and I now work as a primary school teacher up here on the Wirral. Glad to know there are still so many of the lads in good health and doing well.
Best wishes,
John.

Hi John,

A few of the names you mentioned I remember, so many happy memories.

I remember Derek Robson (deck lad) and Barry (steward), Alan Neilson (AB) and Frank Cobb (bosun).

Remember the trip to Christmas Island and the deck games we played with the officers on route.

Still trying to get hold of as many pictures as possible so if anyone has any could you please upload them or email them.

Do you know if the GL and GT retained their names after they were sold??

Ken

Tokyo

Hi I sailed on the Tokyo in the late 70's. I was a catering boy at the time. The chef was a geordie known as Globtik Bob (a brilliant guy). Remember the bosun Frank and Dennis an able seaman and the steward Steve. Remember the horse racing in the crew bar (5p for a beer - oh those were the days when a weeks bar bill was less than a couple of quid). Sailed on the maiden voyage of the new ship too, although not such a hppy place as the big girls.

Hi Brian,
Great to hear from you. Sorry it's taken so long to reply, I haven't looked at the site in over a year. You are absolutely right, those were the days, only 21, a happier time and a fantastic bunch of lads to work with. I really enjoy teaching but I always look back on my days in the Merchant Navy with great fondness and if I am honest, a little sadness. You just don't seem to find people you can depend on like your shipmates when you come ashore. Hope you are in good health, I seem to remember you were quite a handy boxer. Anyway, look forward to your reply.
Stay lucky,
John.

I never sailed on them, but I vividly recall sailing past the Globtik London at 'Nasty Rasty' in 1977. It was sailing past an island. A few weeks later we put into Naples, where the then-new aircraft carrier USS Nimitz was anchored. One of her crew boasted that it was the largest ship in the world. I told him that I'd recently seen the Globtik London and that, for sheer size, the Nimitz simply wasn't even in the running.

There also happens to be a model of the Globtik London on display, in a very large glass case, in the lobby of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies in Maryland. Even that is an impressive sight.

I sailed with an ex-Globtik engineer named Gavin Carter, in Balder Offshore Canada in 1980. He told me that he had been on a Globtik tanker ("Globtik London"?) when it picked up a boatload of Vietnamese refugees in the China Sea. Anyone remember Gavin, or the "boat people" incident?
