Lots of names to conjure up memories. Tommy West was a lovely man, a workaholic who expected the same from his engineers. Unfortunately he died in a terrible accident when he fell in a tankers hold.
The cricket matches were truly something else. The last one I played in was 1975, a truly unsober event.
I left Huntings in 1979 and went on to C.Y.Tung and Y.K.Pao as Chief Eng before swallowing the anchor in 1987. Huntings demise was not long in coming but I kept in touch with Mike Simpson when he went o to form a crewing company.

In my career within the marine industry during the 70's I am aware of a Huntings super 'Jim'? who was an ex examiner of engineers at the Gosforth Dp.Tp office, and was a student/lecturer at Kings College Newcastle. Quite a gent.

The Jim that you are thinking of is James Weedon, a gentleman in every respect. He issued me with 2nd Eng steam permit in 1975 if I remember correctly he was later a superintendent engineer with Denholms.
