Hooray Joe,good to hear from you after all these years. Funnily enough I just picked you out on a group photo of the OM lay abouts recently.Who would have thought our Joe would look so posh in his monkey jacket?. Always tell the tale of my merry men on the Ceramic being named Brian Little and Joe Small..great times. Keep in touch Joe.
Mac.

Went to Zambia in '73 (Copper Mines),then to Jo'burg in '79.Toddled around Southern Africa for a German Engineering company(AEG,later Alstom) till 2007, when I took early retirement, following the loss of my Wife. Presently in Bathurst, Eastern Cape, location of the 1820 English Settlers, where I'm waging a losing battle against Kikuyu grass,Monkeys and the local Mole population.
Keep the Faith.

Hullo John; The name does not ring a bell (but that means naught); as I remember it was a very strange Scot named Fred Dunn, "who was not to be provoked". Another guy I sailed with on Ceramic as Chief Refrig. was Vic. Smith who had sailed Chief Eng. on one of the smaller boats Shaw Swiv had built towards the end of the golden era(Cairn line maybe).A broken Main Shaft on that Boat led to him freezing the lambs on ours. A very nice bloke but over fond of the sauce, as I suppose many of us were at that time(who am I kidding "at that time").
Regards

Sorry to hear about you wife. And I sadly I can't remember her name even though she was on a trip to Kiwi with us.Now kikuyu grass,You have my sympathy have you tried gelignite ?, it would help with moles.
Can't help with the monkeys.my problem is snakes, but we came to an agreement don't come into my yard and I won't shoot.

Hi Barry when you mentioned liking the sauce I thought of terry I sailed with him on the Persic then he did a trip on the ceramic,they we're loading and the meat was coming soft he wanted to send it back but those above insisted that he take it and freeze it thro the night they were all on the sauce he had a nervice breakdown after that trip I think it would have been late 60s.
