Greetings from newest member.

Greetings to all members.
I have just joined you on this site.
It's a long time since I went to sea in March 1957 on the Dilwara as 4th Sparks.
Such good food on a B.I. run ship !
More later
Cheers
Brian

Welcome to the site, Brian.

Echo your sentiments about BI and the wonderful food. Some of the most spectacular I ever had. Anywhere.

Really Important Messages !

Hi,
I do not recall sending in football pools but when I did a spell on a trawler out of Hull, one of T. J. Hudsons, I soon found out that the most important job for the radio room was to get the rugby results on a Saturday ! How did HKR's get on? As long as I got that in, I was ok with the crew !
Cheers
Brian

Hull, outdoor sports

Hull FC or Hull KR? I don't know, I'm from down South. You had better ask the crew of the Cape Mariato !

Old ship photo

Hi,
Tks for that. BTW, who sent it ?
Somewhere I have some photos I took on board, Must look them out.
When I joined, coming from Bournemouth, as green as grass to the fishing game the crew looked at me and had a larf! Are you going to boil tne livers sparks?
I did, we all got extra money so I was sort of accepted!
I wanted the short trips out and back to the uk because I knew I had a job coming up in Canada, but that's another story.
Cheers
Brian
