Hi folks another newbie
I was on the Vindi in 1962..one of the last I believe.
Was sent to P&O the went on to Port Line and ending up on coasters before leaving in 1970 .Not a long career.

Welcome OVB
I'm an old Vindi Boy myself. 1964. Vindi (Agates Navy) battened down its hatches for the last time in 1966 I believe.

Hi Old Vindi Boy,
I was on the Vindi from 14/2/66 to 8/4/66 we used to spend a lot of the time chasing rats of the deck and put under the clock if we were caught ,
as according to the staff there were no rats on board,the only warm place was round the small heating funnel on the top deck and living on cocoa ( anti wan*)and hard bread ,our highlight was going to the seamans mission.if we were not on jankers.
