Hi all
My name is Mike Stokes, I'm new to this site so please be gentle
I attended Sea school in Gravesend May '76, remember that hot one?
I'm interested in finding friends from past. On leaving "sea school" I joined the Arcadia in sept (76) for a few trips which I thoroughly enjoyed, then the Canberra (world cruise '78).
Looking forward to hearing from anyone who remembers me.
Thanks for reading

On behalf of the 'SN Moderating Team', welcome aboard Mike.

You joined Arcadia after I left, but you might be interested in her first 21 years that I compiled https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=3708

I also worked aboard Canberra, and have arranged reunions, so hopefully you will find a few names you remember from both ships(Thumb)

Yes indeed - welcome.
ITS GOOD to see another "peanut" on board.
Lets face it - we needed you guys - all were important on board, no matter what ship, or what company.
