Hi shipmates
It's great to see so many ex Panocean/Anco folk still around and still nostalgic about the good old days. I sailed with Panocean from March 1974 until April 1984 serving on the,Challenger,Charger,Champion,Enterprise,Endeavo ur,Chaser,Sovereign,Templar and Empress. I did several trips on some of those vessels and finaly came ashore in 1984 after a trip on the Charger to the Falkland Islands. I had served on many ships for various companies prior to Panocean but must say some of my most memorable times were on the Post ships. I have plenty of snaps taken during my time with them and will post them to the forum if anyones interested.
Regards,
Roy Parker ( ex CPO )

Hi Guys, I am a bit late with this as I thought that PANOCEAN SHIPPING was
a Korean Company... out here on the West Coast USA i worked their ships on
a regular basis... mostly steel cargoes inbound and logs out-bound... all ship
names began with"PAN". I was waiting for someone to mention them. Snowy.

Snowy,

Pan Ocean Shipping (which was renamed STX Pan Ocean Shipping in 2005) is a Korean company and one with which I am very familiar.

However, this thread refers to a totally separate British company, which is no longer trading.

Carl. I paid off The Sceptre in Rotterdam on August 31st 1982. (Senior Ops) it was my second trip on her and I went on to do two more in 1986 and 88.
My first ship was the "Anco Empress" in 1974. The Sceptre voyage being my last before going coastal for 6 months and then shoreside mid 1989.
I too would love to hear from anyone that remembers Me from those fantastic years.
The Social life certainly was something else in those days and one cringes now at the thought, but hey, wasn't it great?

I joined Panocean in their very early days, I don't quite know why. Sailed on all three of the Rs, before the smart new boats came along. The Post Runner was probably the happiest ship I ever sailed on, and the Post Ranger was about the worst wreck I ever sailed on. She was enough for me, I slung me hook after her.

I had the pleasure of sailing in Anco Charger as the man from the ministry from Oct 1983 to Mar 1984 when she was running for the MoD. Captain was a delightful man called Kerry Lewis from St Austell. My No 3 son was conceived onboard on the only night my wife visited the ship in Fawley - she having justdriven down from Scotland. A subsequent letter received from Captain Lewis in Dec 84 revealed that the "Charger" had quite a reputation for onboard conceptions.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time out of the MoD on Anco Charger with a fine bunch of men who didn't give me too hard a time!

I was on Post Endeavour and Post Challenger 1976/1979. Had a good time and sadly left way too soon. I was known as a Junior Operator. Fazak (Roy) I think you might have been my CPO on Endeavour. South Africa voyage I think.

Hello WallyH,
Joined her in Rio Grande in Brazil on 15/9/88 after a pretty hairy flight on a small mail plane watching mist covered mountains at what seemed like inches from the wing tips.
Payed off 3/12/88 in Singapore and didnt even get one last trip to the beer garden! I wonder if its still there?
Sorry it took so long to answer but my wife is seriously ill with cancer and not checked site for ages atb Herbie

Sorry to hear that hope everything is OK now, if I remember rightly you were stood by me in TsingToa where we were loading Castor Oil and I managed to cover myself head to foot in the stuff changing a hose over, you would most probably remember me as Jack ah the memories, she was a good ship and a good crowd as long as you could stand the pace.

Hi Wallyh,
Was that when I became PO Pumpman for the day so everyone else could go to see the Great Wall?
Think John Garbutt was pumpman, never did get me a beer for doing that for him!
Remember many names like Ronnie Anderson,Steve Maguire,Taff Walters, Frank Perin( best skipper I sailed with) Wonder what happened to them all as its been nearly 20 years! My brother in law lives in Napier having just moved from Hamilton.We looked at moving out there but sadly my wifes illness put a stop to that. Cheers Herbie

yes that was right you were playing pumpman for the day while the rest swanned off to the Great Wall, Alan Rothery was the old man, think he is still with Wallems, the second mate is now with one of the big consultancies and I haven't a clue what happened to the third mate , Rob Gribben i think his name was.

WallyH,
I thought Tsing Toa was beer! Have you got an itinery for that trip as cant remember half the places i went at sea.
My late Grandpa was RN from 1921-1946 and i have all his medals,all stars except the Pacific star and details of his ships, HMS Ark Royal,Ajax,Achilles etc. And i thought going up the Gulf was dangerous enough!
Hope you and yours are well
Herbie ( Paul)

If anyone's interested I've started going through my negatives and slides. Scanned a couple today, Post Challenger and Anco Empress pictures in the Gallery.
For all you 'rock dodgers' out there some of the Pass boats in Swansea prior to sale, probably the last pictures taken of them in Panocean guise, 23rd April 1984.

I have many more but will take time to find/scan/upload.

Regards,
Barry.

Hi Herbie
Bob Dewsbury, now there's a name from the past. Bosun on Athelqueen back in 1979. Remember him standing on the top of one of the maindeck derrick masts, swaying back and fore with the roll of the ship and nothing to hold onto! Also remember him collapsing while tank cleaning in Portugal and having to get him out of the tank, heavy guy, luckily he was ok. As you say, great times.
Regards, Barry.
