Hi Charlie and a warm welcome to shipsnostalgia from all the staff here. We do have a forum specifically for Tankers and crew here https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/forumdisplay.php?f=186 So that could be an ideal place to post for your quest.
cheers,
Andy

I did in 40's and 50's Chas. One Esso was "Esso Buffalo"

Shell was "Linga", "Patella", "Theobaldius", "Hyalina", and I sailed AB in all of them.

Good men on all of them. Regards..........Peter

Hi Charlie,
Served as Apprentice/3rdMate/2ndMate from '48 to '56 in various Shell tankers including Ancylus/ Diloma/Caprinus/Naninia/Nayadis/Newcombia/Latia/Theobaldius/San Florentino/Tagelus/Caprella/Platidia.After that got sensible & for my last 3years seagoing spent in various cargo companies where a night in port usually meant a night in bed & where the berths we used were not about 20miles out of town.
Regards,
Wilco.(Phil Wilkins)

The best tanker site I have found on the web is ...www.visseraa.topcities.com..., mainly Esso and related companies but an amazing site just the same. Described as 'awesome' by an oldie from here! I agree. His gallery of BIG ships is excellent.

Wilco, did you ever sail with a 2nd mate by the name of Bernard Smart,he sailed on Shell through the 50s,then went to work out in Abadan. Lost track of him after he migrated to New Zealand.

Sorry John but don't recollect anyone by that name during my Shell time and although the old memory is getting a bit dicey I think the name Smart(no doubt nicknamed "Alec") would have rung a bell.
