I am an even older Buries Markes man 1950/1955.I was second egineer on a La Sierra ON 183247
built in 1950 during 1954 tramping between South Africa and North America.It is probably a different
ship to the one you served on.I was glad to leave the La Sierra but enjoyed my time with Buries Markes.

Hi quantum,
I was senior apprentice back then. Came out of my time on way to Sidney and promoted 4th mate, but still served as senior apprentice. Osbourne was mate and his wife was repatriated from S Africa. Peter Riley was 2nd mate Navigation. We had another 2nd mate who was in charge of the discharging gear.
Good trip. Still in touch with another of the apprentices and 2nd mate.
Who and what were you?
I was born in Halifax royal infirmary!
