Hello to All!

I found this community by the grace of Google as I was searching for some information on my very first vessel, the M.V. Mano. She was previously a Blue Funnel Ship I believe.

I served my Midshipmans apprenticeship with "Ocean Fleets" and started off at Riversdale College in Liverpool in about 1973.

Anybody else around at that time?

Cheers!

Welcome aboard. I started off as an E/C in the Jan 80 intake - I may have sailed with you! I did Ph.I at BTC and Ph.III at Riversdale. I think Mano was previously Mentor, but stand to be corrected.
Best Rgds.
