I remember in 1964/65 seeing a Crescent ship in Gt.Yarmouth with a jury rigged drilling tower built on deck made of big timbers, the drill tower was hanging above the port side. I was told she was to be used in the southern north sea to drill for oil/gas. I don't remember her name, and never saw her again as she had sailed before we sailed from Gt. Yarmouth. I don't know if she was ever used.

Ambience, Blatence, Cadence, Dominence & Eloquence started the alphabet...

Some of the older London & Rochester Trading Company barges are listed at: http://www.thamesbarge.org.uk/barges...rs/FWlrtc.html

The Pudge built 1922 by London & Rochester Trading company
http://nationalhistoricships.org.uk/...essel/vref/224

There is a picture of "The Cabby" a 1928 barge, in the livery of Crescent Shipping at http://bargetrust.org/active_barges.html

I am trying to remember the name of the one we launched while I was there, but all I can recall is that the bottle didn't break when it should have done!
Hi..My Dad Leslie Foreman worked for London Rochester/Crescent Shipping and was on the Pudge for about 6 months as far as I know do you remember him.
