any-one out there sailed on a nice little ship the Silvio.

she ran from Hull to Sweden and Finland mainly.

I was on her in 1967 and stayed for about 6-7 months.

I was the galley boy, the cook was Bob Holcombe, chief steward was Jim Dempsey I believe, assistant steward was Laurie, pantry boy was David.... can't remember his surname even though I later sailed with him on the Norwave.

There was a guy called Dodo Grady on deck, a collossus of a bloke, can't remember much about the rest of the deck crew.

It was a good ship, good happy crew.
