A very warm welcome to the site Jim. You will find quite a few lads from the Grey Funnel Line already onboard. From an ex-Fishhead don't worry about being FAA we won't hold it against you!

Seriously though enjoy all that the site has to offer (including the light hearted banter).

Kind regards

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.
