Well, well, well! That is a pleasant surprise. I don't read of LNS and Counties that often. I went to LNS 1945 (I think) and, in 1948 joined Counties. I was 3rd mate on "Woldingham Hill" when you joined the company. I remember being in Aden when George VI died.but don't remember the Coronation. I saw the Coronation film in Bombay. Anyone remember that admiral on a horse? That was a laugh- he had a job hanging on and did not seem, at all, happy! Afterwards, I became a "Caltex man" before coming ashore in 1963.
