When I was in the Frederick T Everard in 1962, the chief steward's name was Ted, but I forgot his surname. He kept very much to himself, so I did not really get to know him. I know he was very keen on going to dog racing though! He was getting on at the time, I would think he was approaching retirement!

I never sailed with Everards but I was on the Tilapa a skin boat and a Peter Newlands was called up to see the old man who informed him he had been awarded the B.E.M.for attempting along with another man to save an unfortunate man who fell in the dock at Rotterdam ,I believe the ship he was on was the Aclarity Peter must be one of the youngest person to receive this honour.Are there any of Everards crew who were on this ship at the time?it would be interesting to hear from them ,I have tried for many a year to find Peter but no luck he would be 78 now,he was 17 at the time of his award of the medal.

interesting bit about loss of the Fred Everard.The 3rd Engr who was on watch at the time,a little guy from the sub-continent originally but from Croydon at the time of the loss was lerft below with no word of what had happened!He was eventually rescued by,I think,the lifeboat men.He was 2nd on a ship I had after,maybe Apricity or Supremity.

My apologies re the vessel re it was not the Aclarity it was the Asperity and the place where Peter and another seaman who was also posthumously a bravery award was Vlaringden not Rotterdam, again if anyone served on the Asperity at the time please let us know.thank you.

Yup, sure do. I was a Cadet on HMS Worcester and "City" spent a fair amount of time on the buoys opposite. That class of rebuilds always intrigued me.

Capt Barney Seaman

My Grandfather, Barney Seaman started his time working as cabin boy on the 'Martinet', an Everard Sailing Barge. He stayed with FT Everard throughout and ended up as Skipper on the Stability with a number of tankers and coasters in between. He died many years ago when I was a young boy, but the internet has now allowed me to find out something of his past. Nice memories.

I sailed on the yellow peril 'Speciality' in the 50's not a bad ship, good skipper, fair food, but bluddy hard work with three hatches of dominoes being humped around sometimes 2 or 3 times a day, never needed a gym. Although speed on specifications was 11 knots, somebody must have dreamt it, you'd be lucky to get 8 knots on a good day with those Newbury sewing machines, which made navigation very interesting when rock dodging loaded and a foot or less under the keel, you could more or less disregard squat

We wer very lucky to be around in the late fifties sixties and seventies, for the ships and port we could visit home and foreign articles memories still with me. Bucket list is to visit all the home ports I visited.
