Can't believe I just found this site! I joined Silver Line as a deck cadet in 1966 joining the Tower Bridge in Hamburg. Needless to say, details are still hazy after two nights ashore (first time abroad!) but I remember the skipper was Jim Wyness and mate was Charlie Forth (Charles IV). My fellow cadets were George Turner, Ty Ali and Andrew Poynder. Read the thread on Ty but wonder if anyone has come accross the others? Sailed on the Crag, Beach, Cove, Falcon amongst others end ended as mate on the Silvereid around 1974

Great days indeed....
