New entrant

Hello everyone,

I feel like a new boy starting out in his first job trying to find something to introduce myself with. I was shore staff with Blue Funnel and enjoyed every moment working in that company. As part of training I went on a coast trip from Gladstone to Glasgow on Ascanius shortly after she returned from a short spell as Akosombo with EDL. Towards the end of my time with Ocean I acted as a courier and went to Lagos staying a couple of nights on Melampus before returning to UK.

Best wishes
