Hi Lucy Knight, Read you done time on SS ALINDA. I done time on her 64/65 when she was SAN ERNESTO. Good shipmates on board. Usual runs to Curacao plus West Africa and two trips up to BODO,NORWAY and up BALTIC to LULEA ,SWEDEN. It was very cold i can remember,especially when we were on watch in Engine Room.
Sorry to see her end up on the scrapping beach out east!!

Think i have a couple of photos of the crew bar. When they opened it shortly after all the aft accomodation was repaired after that awful fire, the crew had a party. The bar stayed open for a few days until some of the chairs, I heard, were liberated over the side). A couple of the middle aged harmless engine room wipers were trying to turn my head for a photo. I hated cameras. I also have one of the crew messman who kept reminding me he remembered me with my satchel going to to primary school when he had been our milkman. The crew on there were fairly docile, unlike on the next H boat when I made a point of sleeping with a shifter on my door lock after one or two had barged in after midnight and the bosun was caught in the early hours in the midship accomodation wanting to have it out with me by the capt who had just joined. Shell tankers could certainly be lively.
