Had the pleasure of sailing with Ronnie twice on the Eurofreighter and then shared an office in Clydebank with him when we were with Sweca part of Northern Marine. A true gentleman.

Hope the link to the article in the local paper works ok.

Sorry, link did not work. Not much good at these things. The article was about Ronnie being at sea for 42 years and is now the Chief Engineer on the Queen Victoria.

Would be good if someone could post the article as there is a good photograph of Ronnie

Well, whichever clip is right he has either got a lot darker or a lot more less thin.

I can't remember if it was Ronnie that always volunteered to change contactor contacts for me (first dibs on the scrap silver) on the GTVs.

42 years and he still looks happy. Good for him.

Couldn't agree more, good bloke and sailed with him on Asiafreighter or Asialiner, or both! (Thumb)
I wonder where his trademark baseball cap and moustache disappeared to? (Jester)
