We are both wrong Barrie.
It is :
Duco
Ducis
Ducit
Ducimus
Ducitis
Ducunt

But not bad after 65 years

Et *** spiritu tuo.

For some arcane reason, the SN censor has replaced the latin word for with, with asterisks.
Must be American, they are a very prissy people.

I have found that if you use the Welsh for valley, it fits, is roughly similar in pronunciation and passes the censor.

Duncs,
That is the same reason that my wife studied Italian for eight years!! "Because it sounds nice!". I managed to talk her out of Portuguese.

In the family, we can speak English, Spanish, Italian, French and some German!

Rgds.

I speak Portuguese, it's a lovely language!
My wife speaks fluent Italian (mother tongue), English, Russian, French, Portuguese and her Spanish is passable. Hearing flip from one language to another is wonderful.
My sons speak English, Italian, French and Spanish.
I honestly believe the greatest mistake the British education system has made over the past 50 years is not having a more proactive language emphasis.

I worked alongside a German guy in Tzafit, Israel who spoke 11 languages fluently. Unfortunately, he could not say thank you in any of them.

I can only speak four languages, good gaelic, bad gaelic, good English and bad English. On one vessel, aptly named the 'Bluebird', the German OM asked me if I understood what he and C/E were saying. All I could reply was, "nine zero nine".

As an aside to the above, with my nodding of head and my ja,s and nines, they were convinced I understood them, and was hiding it from them. Little did they know, I hadn't a clue.

When I first came ashore in 1981 in Antwerp , one of the team was the clerk who
took care of the paperwork , sending the loading permits to stevedores and in
general taking care of the lowley work that no one else would do. But he spoke
Flemish , French , English and German fluently and could switch from one to the other in seconds. A real eye opener.

A couple more previously very active members who have disappeared from the site are Chadburn, a very knowledgeable ex Ch Engineer with some military connections, and Leratty, who, it seemed, was a citizen of the world, living a life of luxury in Paris and various other glamorous places, with his wife, until he set off some years ago to circumnavigate the globe in his yacht. Never heard from him since.

I swapped emails with Chadburn after we discovered a shared interest in powerboats and motor yachts amongst other non-nautical interests. He stopped posting regularly when a relative was in hospital and he was visiting daily. He has also ceased activity on t'other site, and hasn't replied to my last email.

Leratty was eventually headed for Auckland during his long cruise and had promised to contact me for a meet up but I have heard nothing yet.
That's the trouble ,or benifit of cruising , time means little if you are enjoying the port that you are in.

On another occasion, we, in the harbour office, geared up, waiting for the ferry, ETA 10mins. A huge campervan approached the pier, an elderly gent got out and opened the big gate, and drove onto the pier. I had already laid out FW hose, ready for the chippie, through shell door. That's what he wanted, FW. I thought, schimt, he's blocking the gangway and ran out to tell him, quite politely, to leave the pier. He looked at me, and said something like "ich verstanicht", then took out a wallet. "I pay". I pointed him in the direction of the vessel, about a cable off, and said, in my best German, "das f*cking Schiff ist near das f*cking pier". He hurriedly left.
He was back later, and as I was the nightwatchman, I topped up his FW tank. It took one minute. The ship, needing 40 tons took all night.

Someone who suddenly disappeared was Terence. It's been a few years, still no word on what happened.

Many years in fact. I exchanged PMs with him. He always enjoyed photos of my work travels. He was from somewhere on Merseyside.

Naucler was a Marine Lawyer, I believe. He was from Scandinavia, Finland, I think.

Thanks Dave.
That was my understanding too although I thought Sweden not that it matters.
Without any basis I wonder if 'he was silenced'.
