Sweet Memories of great days...

2nd June 2007, 16:10
It all started because I decided to check out the status of ham radio these days and found this site. I did my PMG and Radar at Norwood Technical College back in the late 60's and was at sea as a sparky (mainly with BP Tankers) for a few years thereafter in the early 70's. Great days. Will try and dig up some pics from way back and submit them. Am still running back and forth to the Gulf these days but for different reasons...remember Isle of Grain??

A warm welcome Vetkoek. I hope that you enjoy your membership, will help the site by making your own contributions and hopefully make contact with some of your old shipmates.

Welcome Vetkoek,
Lots of ex R/O's here. Are you thinking of taking your ham radio ticket? It'll be great hearing from you on Ships Nostalgia and looking at those pics.

A warm welcome to SN from the Isle of Anglesey.
There is every chance that you will meet old shipmates on this site so, have a good look round and join in the banter as much as possible.
Beware, it is addictive! (Thumb)
