Smile Ebro 1961

I sailed on the Ebro 1961 2 trips to the West Indies, then joined the Amazon and in 1962 did another 3 trips on the Ebro, in 1963 left Royal Mail and went to Bowring, then Buries Markes and finally Cory Bros,
I was a "Lekky"at first then transferred to Engineer. nice to hear from you, those were the days
