Sailed on Sagamore between September 1971 and Feb 72. Joined her as a first trip deck Cadet in Newport and went up to Murmansk. Then Monrovia, Nouadhibou and Seven Isles. The Old man was Capt Coyle for most of the time, and the Mate was Kevin Campbell. I ran into Capt Coyle again when he joined the Orotava Bridge in Hamburg, late 72, I think.

Many thanks.

Hi my first ship was the Orepton, I was junior sparks, we went from Workington to Seven Islands in Canada, I was seasick the whole trip, we then did a trip to Narvik back to Port Talbot and then to Murmansk where the ship caught fire and sadly the Chief Officer lost his life, he was from Mumbles South Wales, he was a great guy and this is my first mention of a very sad start to my MN career.

How nice to see all 'my' old ship names above....I first met up with them as an Agency Clerk in BISC(Ore) Middlesbrough office from 1960 to 1964, I then moved to London HQ and as Asst.Distribution Manager had the job of looking after the voyage allocation of all the Port Talbot sized vessels,including the Houlders fleet. Thereafter,took over the remaining,then BSC, vessels,all 72, till moving back into agency on Humberside.

Capt.Boothby mentioned above, was it George?...also remember well Walter Backhouse who lived on the moors near Whitby I think, Capt.Oddy, and a Northern Irishman Capt Barclay?

Ahh.... Workington (also Barrow via Oremina and Oregis) in 1959-61 ... I still have a 'borrowed' tea spoon from Bruciannis coffee bar - anyone remember that? I wonder what happened to Margaret Roberts whom I last saw in a Brighton coffee bar ....

MV Orelia - Captain Bulley

Dear Robin J, had cause to double check dad - P. J. Kelly - R/O, had got the Captain's name correct and not just describing his personality - as he could on occasion! I can confirm that our Phil has him down spelt as Captain Bulley (with an 'e') and presume as an R/O would have got it correct. Found the query in BA204259'S comments of 1 January 2007 timed at 11:53. - but thought better late than never to confirm! Cheers. H

You are correct. Joined the Orepton as Nav App under Capt Allan J. Bulley. Shared a taxi with him and the 4th Engineer to the shipping office in Workington. It was a quiet ride. I ventured a comment about the upcoming trip and it was met with a glare and no response. Later, the engineer advised me that the Old Man "doesn't talk to apprentices".
