An interesting Place

Hi All,

I clicked a link earlier today, when searching for photos of some ships I'd served on in the 80's & early 90's, which brought me to Ships Nostalgia.
From browsing around earlier I decided to register, as I may be able to
get in touch with some old shipmates.

I was an RO from 1978 thru to 1994 starting out with Marconi, for a year, then moving to United Arab Shipping for 8-9 years, serving on 10-15 different vessels. Next I did a brief stint with Electronav Marine Electronics, serving on MV Nosira Lin of Bolton Maritime Management for approx 2 years, and finishing off with Cardiff Ship Management from 1990 to mid 1994 serving on 6-7 vessels during this period, before finally calling it a day.

Hopefully I'll get in touch with former shipmates.
