Hello Everyone,

Just joined your community.
I'm looking for a very good friend of mine who I have lost contact with.
He was 3rd 2nd and Chief Mate with UBC in the 60s/70s his name Was Timothy Peter Garth Evans.
He sailed on many of the Baltic boats, as did I between 1964 - 1972
Any news would be gratefully receive on this site.

I was with UBC from 1964 until 1967 but did not sail with Tim Evans, as we would probably have been of the same rank at that time. I usually sailed onthe London based ships although I spent the Seaman's strike on the Merchant in Hull.

There was an Annual reunion in London but haven't heard much about it since I moved to France. I know they were asked to alternate it with Hull at one stage.

Welcome Captain Dave, sorry I also cannot help you - I was in UBC from '76 to '98 so a bit late for your quest as well.

Ian - do they still have the reunions ? I only ever heard about one and that was after the event (I know - every picture tells a story !!)
