Hello my name is Bob Alexander and I'm from Wellington,New Zealand. I left NZ on Kronviken Wallem and Co Bergen,Norway 1949, was paid off in Rotterdam, then joined P&O. I sailed on the Maloja,Stratheden, Palana and Soudan Continent over 3 years then one year on Stanvac Canberra Mobil tankers. I then returned to NZ in 1954/55 on Towai ex Purple Emperor.

I am interested in contacting anyone who I sailed with over those years.
