thanks for the welcome message, up till now, I have been using various sites, eg saga, r.a.f. forum, rootschat etc, and have just discovered this one while trying to find ship pictures, hopefully ones that I sailed on, ( aal pics I had destroyed in fire) so this was a bit of serendipidy, I think thats the word. My time in the merch was,nt all that long, 5 years, after I had left the R.A.F., and included m.v. Avisbrook, (Purvis aviation and shipping) Stancrown, crowborough beacon, lapwing, bretwalda, lesrix, and a couple more that I,ve got to look up. the one I was searching for in particular was the Vercharmain, a heavy lift ship, quite a few very different trips on that one. anyway, must stop rambling on, look forward to catch up later.(Thumb)

Welcome aboard, Michael.
Glad you found us, most of the crew arrived in the same way.
Now you've signed on, explore the ship and enjoy the trip.

Michael, from Michigan, a warm welcome to Ships Nostalgia.
Good to have you onboard.
The Vercharmain appears to have slipped through the internet net--don't see a picture or her anywhere, but perhaps one of our members will come through with a photo.
