Any shipmates from the above? I was REO in BM for about 6/7 years.
Looking for Martin Birchmore and Hugh Thomas and any other that may recall me.

Hi Les,
I was RO/REO with BM from 1977 to '81. Didn't actually meet you but heard your name a few times. Haven't been in touch with anybody from that period of my life, but I am still in touch with Gerry Linehan who was a BM RO and later Cargo Officer on Norman Lady. I worked with the same employer as Gerry when we both became landlubbers in the '80s. I have some great memories of Martin Birchmore who was CE on my first trip (La Loma as 2RO with Bill Guinan). In any case, good luck with your search.

Hi Jim - very late reply - sorry. Eventually spoke with Bill's wife. He passed away some time ago. Very good chap - clever but nervous.
