Hi all,
May I introduce myself,I did my first trip to sea in 1958 on the RIVER AFTON,then in 1959 ,I joined the SEPT ILES,and did 12 months in her,followed by other ore carriers ,tankers ,cargo ships cable layers etc.having spent many years at sea, I eventually "came ashore" and worked as a rigger in the construction industry,and retired two years ago as a site supervisor.I am currently trying to get photo's of the vessels I sailed on,and I hope to get in touch with many old shipmates.
best wishes to all

Hi Sailorman 1943. Was the River Afton part of the Hunting fleet at that time? I sailed with Huntings from '55 to '62
