Hi Graeme,
Think I vaguely remember the name.
You might like to look on facebook for our page. (Panocean-Anco people, pumpmen and p*ssheads)
Lots of memories and old faces on there.
Very pleased to hear from you and that you had a successful career.
Regards,
Jasper.

Just finished 28 years in the Fire service and now retired.
Definitely some of the best years of my life spent at sea.
Be great to hear from anyone that remembers me.

Hi Martin,

Of course, I remember you. In fact I tried to contact you a few years back, but I had no luck!

Hope you are having a great retirement. Get in touch if you read this.

Hi Graeme I think we loaded condensate at Zuitina and had a spill because the loading master aka Agent aka pilot was hanging up his boiler suit to dry in the engine room and he was the only one with a radio who could tell the shore to stop.

If you know anything about Dad or what ship was in dry-dock at that time please let me know, especially if you knew him or worked with him personally (or know someone who did).

Thanks, Anna
HI Anna,

Maybe a bit late, but certainly remember Fred - known as “Fred the Red” only sailed with him briefly but met him at other times including a long docking in Yokohama, Japan - which I think was the Charger if recall correctly.

I'm sorry to hear that he passed away although by 1998 he would probably have been in his mid-seventies.
By the time I sailed with him all of his sea going "escapades" were long behind him and I believe the "Bluebell" tag came from his participation in the Royal Navy and a chorus girl kind of show that he would have been part of during the 40's and 50's (although I'm guessing).
A very likeable man that was always chatty and polite as well as humorous.
Others within Pan-Ocean would have known him better than me and I will ask about to see what information I can get for you.
Kind regards. John.

Hi - sailed with Bluebell, my wife used to have afternoon tea with him on the deck outside our cabin. If recall correctly the nickname came from when he used to dress up in drag as one of the “Bluebell” dance troupe girls - he showed us a photo of himself in the full outfit.

Many thanks for sharing your memory! Through the kindness of some of Bluebell's contemporaries I now know so much more about him than I ever thought possible. I have even seen pictures of him so thank you for your time. It means a lot.
