Question Amey Roadstone ARC Dredgers

I worked with My uncle Evan on the Arco Trent and I worked aboard the Arco Scheldt in 1976 as AB/Steward, does anyone remember me? Think I made the Captains boiled eggs just the way he liked them Looking for the chief engineer on the Arco Trent, he lived in Suffolk and had a thing for shotguns and Machine guns, ie. from crashed fighter aircaraft WW2 vintage, anyone any ideas?.....Think his first name began with an 'L' if that helps
