Thanks, Old Engine. VPL doesn't have it on their shelves, but I've ordered it from Amazon.

CP Female Officers

I stayed with CP until made redundant in 88, remained at sea until 2014 when I retired.
Maddie Haris married Byron Gudgeon and joined the WA Mather in 83 I think, Byron relieved me in Fujaira and I signed off with John Simcox, that was his first trip master.
Tracey Edwards was another female cadet I sailed with once as cadet and once as 3/O.
There was another one who's name I forget who left and joined the police, she had married a 2/O and CP messed them about never getting on leave together.
Thanks for making my memory work
Hi Henry,

Nice to hear from you. I remember you and Gloria, but it was MV WA Mather we sailed together on in 1983. I also remember Hugh Hutchinson 3/E and his wife Gaye, C/O Chris Ireland, and 4/E Harry ? from that trip. I joined in Hamburg and paid off in Zamboanga, Philippines.
I was the 3/O who married the 2/O ( Mike Heffer) and left to join the police. CP were not very helpful to say the least, hence I decided on a career change. We divorced in 2003, and I last heard Mike was working and living in Brazil on oil rig supply vessels.
I spent 30 years with Dorset Police, retiring in 2014.
I now live in North Ayrshire, Scotland.

I sailed with Maddie and Byron Gudgeon on one of the product tankers, possibly the Fort Coulonge in 1982.

Your first montage includes me, Bruce Nicholls. I was deck cadet. I remember that the mate was allergic to alcohol. That was a first...particularly on CP Ships. I took redundancy in 1986. Worked in cargo inspection for a few years then in the trading dept at BP. Retired two years ago. Now living in Wales.

Hi there, I am acting on behalf of CP and I am trying to locate an ex-CP seafarer who was at sea during the period from 1978 to 1989 in order to assist me in relation to a legal claim. If you are able to assist, please provide me with your contact details. Many thanks
