Hello from an ex A.B.

Hi There,
Just to say I was in the MN from 1957 to 1965. 13 ships total mainly from Southampton, and I suppose my only claim to fame is that I was on the Aviator as EDH when she collided with the Crystal Jewel in the channel. don,t remember to much to be honest as I was on 12-4 and got thrown against the bulkhead in the collision while in my bunk. I remember that she got taken off of auto on my watch as the fog came in and one of the other EDHs went on the wheel. We eventually carried on to Wilhemshaven where we paid off on 21 Sept 1961. They couldn't wait to get us off. I would like to find some photo's of my old ship's for my personal album if any members have any that have not already been posted, I will post a list of my ship's later this week. Many thanks, a great shipping site.
Best Regards, Threebs.
