Hi all

I sailed on the "Volo" in the early 60's under Capt. Stilwell , a rather eccentric character. His nickname was 'Flag Jack' because he insisted on every flag being rove half way through the truck.

As an example. He was always immaculately turned out and always phoned his wife from Oslo and I can still picture him in spotless uniform complete with great coat[I] but with a wooly bobble hat on his head[I]
Occasionally, half way back he would grab a broom and start sweeping the quay!

I sailed on the Cattaro for 1 trip down the Med, then I was transferred to the cicero on the Gothenburg run. When the ro/ro ferries took over the cicero traded on the eastern Swedish coast.
When that trade finished I joined the Volo for 1 trip to Oslo before the Volo was sold to the Greeks
I finished my time on the Ciceros sister ship the Rollo

My mother, Betty 'Jane' Russell, and my father, Derek Taylor, were both stewards on, I believe, the Malmo, sailing, I think out of Hull to Stockholm in 1953/54. Does anyone remember my dad?

I was R/O on the Marengo for several North Atlantic trips, first half of 1958. Captain was David Stokes. He kept signing me on again as soon as we reached home port of Hull, even though it meant paying Marconi for me for 10 days until the ship was ready to sail again. He always asked me not to transmit while the Archers was on :-)
