Hi. I joined ED. in 1963 as an apprentice engineer. Two years spent at Riversdale Marine Tech then at sea followed by a year at South Shields. I had to leave in 1969 when I found out I was going blind. Never mind, I enjoyed my time with the company.

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)

Welcome from another ex-E.D.'s man.
I was with E.D.'s from 1954 till 1970 so we may well have met during that time.
There will be plenty of interest for you on this site.

Kindest Regards - James Smith.
