You think that looks spooky. You aught to see my wife after drinking 11 whiskies. (I keep telling her not to drink so much) Happy New Year.

Hi Everyone, I am Luke, captain (Pongo) Len Rood's grandson. I went to see the exhibition and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the information and photos. Especially of my granddads football team (PFC). It was really interesting and well put together. I went with my mum (Jenny) and she was just wondering when the next reunion is. Many thanks to Pete bass for inviting us to the exhibition.

Cheers for now

I remember Bri Chapman was going to buy a piece of his land to build a house on, he wanted 600 for it, would be worth a fortune these days. I cannot remember his name but I'm sure in his younger days he was engineer on the tug that shot the German plane down in WW2.
Hi ray just doing the nostalga bit and saw your question, The engineer I think was Sid Haywood and was in the shore gang when I met him. Dave.

Hi Dave,
Sid Haywood it is. I remember him bringing the eggs to sell on a Saturday morning. Can't remember exactly where his land was although I have a feeling it was down Sacred Gate.

Hi Ray

The long standing Ch Eng on MT Foreman was Wilf Shores - I have tried to attach a not very good photo of Wilf and Pongo on board Foreman.
I'm not sure which part of this flimsy little planet you are at the moment. If you are away and somewhere warm you may not be aware that there is a campaign (appears to be successful) by Pongo's daughter to preserve 'Dead Bod'. ABP are being very helpful and want to carefully remove said Bod to safety while the Siemens Green Port construction progresses. Google Hull Daily Mail Dead Bod for details.
If the picture doesn't attach itself I will have another attempt

Best wishes Mike C

Hi Mike,
Yes that's Wilf how I remember him. I am in Brazil in the moment in the shipyard in Niteroi across the bridge from Rio. I'm living in a hotel so things are not too bad. I know all about the"save the Dead Bod" I saw it on TV before I came away (I've actually ordered a tee shirt)
