Hi - it was a couple of years ago (and some) that I went to sea as an RO employed by Marconi Marine. Longest contract was two years in the Far East working on the SS Ranee that belonged to the Asiatic Steam Nav Co; Calcutta to Yokohama via the usual ports in between. The Vietnam war was in full swing and the Moon landing happened too, so it was quite a long time ago.

Trained at the British School of Telegraphy Penywern Rd around 1967/68.

Haha the moon landing.Ship I was on nobody knew or cared although I do remember reading about it from an old Daily Mirror in Calcutta.
My mother had saved all the cuttings for me though.
