Just joined this web and wanted to say Hello to all you shipmates. My husband Kenneth Collins died 2005 he was in the Merchant Navy (A) for 6 years before I met him in 1956. Enjoyed his stories of the sea, so decided I would like to join this web. Have a nice day. Regards Jean Collins

Jean, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
We're sorry to hear about your husband but perhaps some of the reminiscences on SN will bring back happy memories.

Welcome aboard, Jean.
You may find someone in the crew who sailed with your husband.
Meanwhile explore the ship and enjoy the voyage.

Welcome from Lancashire.
I hope you will enjoy the site.

If you post some more information about your late husband's ships, company etc. it is quite possible that someone of our nearly 30,000 members will have known him. In any case they may be able to point you at information about the ships if you are interested.
