Aluco

Were you relieved on the Aluco by R/O Phil Maciver. I remember him sending me a postcard photo of her around March 77 which matched yr date paying off, just before i joined Hemitrochus. Still have postcard somewhere.

Haminella 7/1/76 - 30/4/76
Aluco 14/9/76 - 7/2/77
Partula 1/6/77 - 30/8/77 (tar boat, recall some interesting scenes as steam pipes burst in the tanks and caused a gusher of tar everywhere!)
Geomitra 15/3/78 - 1/8/78
Mena 13/11/78 - 24/3/79
Drupa 28/6/79 - 18/5/79 (offloading at Brent Spar if I recall correctly?)

Etrema 19/3/81 - 30/6/81

Pomella 20/5/82 - 14/9/82
Limnea 18/11/82 - 4/12/82 (to scrap I think hence short trip)
