Thanks Ian.

I have the following ex Bolton guys that I need to find their name, what dept etc so I can match it with the SN I.D.:

Backsplice
Riptide
Polarum
Iaint
TMW
Dotart
John Hamilton
ROVintage
Doug H
Dick Ware

I thought that, rather than bug them, I would give it some time to see if they came forward.

It's probably time to contact them.

Thanks again ....Hey, can you believe it snowed here this morning???? Time to get off this Island...all the fresh salmon and crab and great hunting ain't worth this......

Best wishes,

Ian

Come on in Randy, the water is great. You are an ex Boltanian, that is all that counts.

Let's hear some stories about the raging office parties you had on Friday afternoons!!!!

When I worked for SSM I spent time in the office getting the computers programmed for the ships being built out in Tamano. Every Friday, office staff (males) all wore a dark blue tie with five signal flags on it. They would not tell me what it was. I worked out it spelled POETS but did not have a clue what it meant. When I headed out to Japan they gave me a POETS tie and informed me it stood for "Piss Off Early Tommorow's Saturday".....

My first ship was the Rievaulx, joined her late october, 1963, in Birkenhead.
My indentures were telling me that over the next four years I was to earn 840.10shillings and that amongst other things I was not to enter any houses of ill repute.
My first trip was to Monrovia, and for the first 5 days I was as sick as a dog. I discovered that:
It was possible to scrub the wheelhouse deck and polish the brass in an hour, starting at seven o'clock in the morning.
Apprentices couldn't buy booze, but that didn't stop them from drinking it.
Skiving was a skill well worth perfecting.

The following are the only names I can remember from my first trip:

Colin Beharrall, chippy, Cap,n Grugan the old man, Sid Peters second mate, Charlie Ingham third mate, senior apprentice Ollie Overland, Tibor Keene, apprentice, joined a couple of trips later, and finally me, Rhod Baikie.

Ian, you must have been at So'tun the same years as Tiny Tait, but in the other class with Alf Garnet. Last I saw of him was at Shields when we were doing a ticket. He had been snagged by a big Shields girl and was about to be hitched, so he was not allowed out much.

Captain B.F.R.Thomas

Matt, (B.F.R.'s Grandson)

Very pleased and interested to receive the information hereunder in respect
of your Grandfather with whom I sailed sailed on SS REYNOLDS, a WW2 Liberty Ship owned by The Bolton Steamship Company. I don't know how I've received this information? - perhaps I made an enquiry some time ago in "Ships Nostalgia" ??

We all regarded your grandfather with some fondness as, to us, a very old!!
( 48 yrs) salt and knew he was one of seven survivors of SS Ramsay of
Bolton Steamship Co , convoy ON100 torpedoed south of Greenland June 10th
1942 by U 94 Kapitan Ites and was commended for war service..
He was previously Captain(?) on Boltons "Romney" ( all their ships named
after artists whose names began with "R" - Reibeek, Romney, Ruysdael etc )

" Reynolds" was a liberty ship whose welded construction caused them to be
regarded as prone to breaking in half!. Our second mate,a somwhat nervous
type, said to me " I don't like these ships, they're bloody dangerous!!" You
Grandfather kept a happy ship and we had a pleasant if somewhat slow
passage around the world, Spain Ceylon ( as was) Japan,China, Singapore,
Australia and back to Birkenhead via Suez, Passing Gibralter on christmas
eve my watch of 3 decided we would sing carols outside your grandfathers
cabin whereupon he opened his door and said " I was expecting you buggers"
and we had a convivial christmas early morning having accepted his tots of
rum as we discussed what had been a very stormy eventful voyage, I've,
years ago, spoken to members of Boltons staff about your Grandfather, who I
think he might have been Boltons senior captain. I have a picture of SS
Reynolds on my study wall. Boltons was a somewhat paternalistic tramp ship
company and treated us all very well. Pictures of " Reynolds"are available
on "Ships Nostalgia" on line

I also have the full story on Boltons SS Reynolds that preceeded " My"
replacement Reynolds ( master - Roderick David Macleod) She was lost with
all 47 hands,hit by two torpedoes at stern and amidships and capsized in
seconds after being torpedoed 210 miles east of Durban and south of
Madagascar on 31/10/42 per U-boat U504 skippers ( Hans Georg Frederick (
Fritz) Poske) report. Strangely, he records talking to suvivors as to their
ships name and cargo carried. When I queried " no survivors?" I was answered
with " that's what used to happen" he sailed on and left them to drown.

Somewhat bloodthirstily, I have some satisfaction that both U - boats were
sunk. U 94 was sunk 28/08/42 by depth charges from aircraft and ramming by
HMCS Oakville with 26 survivors, including Kapitan Ites - later a dentist.

Reynolds U 504 was sunk in company of two other Uboats 462 and 461 in a
hide and seek battle in southern Bay of Biscay that lasted from 29th and
30th July 1943 when sited and tracked and damaged by 5 aircraft all
suffering return fire from all 3 U-boats - 1 aircraft damaged and had to
land in Portugal. On 30th U - boat killer group HMS Woodpecker,Kite,Wren
and Wild Goose bought to the scene by aircraft reports hunted, depth charged
and sank all three U - boats. U 904 " no survivors,much wreckage and human
remains" per " Dark sky and deep waters" book by Norman Franks published by
" Grub street" ISBN 1-902304-37-3 1999 pages 43 etc.

Your grandfather was a real character! - and I'm so pleased to know his
later history. Thankyou.

Kind regards

Vic Wroth,

Bolton's owned five ships named Reynolds during their history, the liberty ship being Reynolds (3) built 1944 as the SAMCEBU, purchased by Bolton's in 1947, sold in 1951 and broken up in 1964 after sailing under a number of other names.

Reynolds (2)

Cargo ship Reynold, 5,113grt, (Bolton SS Co. Ltd) had sailed independently from Table Bay on the 21st October 1942 to Durban, sailing from there on the 30th October 1942. The ship was never seen again. It was not until December 30th 1942 the ship was officially classed as missing. On the 20th January 1943, German radio claims to have sunk a ship by this name and a Missing Ship Committee take into consideration the facts they have and conclude she was probably lost on the 31st October 1942, possibly sunk by a commerce raider thought to be operating in that area. Records from U-504 state they intercepted a ship 210 miles from Durban at 17.18 hours on the 31st October 1942, hitting the ship with two torpedoes amidships and in the stern where the ship capsized and sank within a few seconds. They claim a few survivors were seen in the water and questioned them saying their ship was the SS Reynolds enroute from Durban to India. The U-boat then left the scene and the men to their eventual fate. 40 crew and 7 DEMS gunners lost. For some reason all the gunners are dated as being killed 2nd November 1942. This is probably due to the fact there were no survivors and the exact date was not known until these men had already been registered as killed in action.

Sorry to bring sad news to this part of the site, but I found out yesterday that Barry Neville (2/E and C/E with Boltons) passed away last month. Barry had retired some time ago and I bumped into him once a year at a model engineering exhibition in the midlands. It was there that I found out he had succumbed. RIP

Hi Ian thanks for such a great idea. I was a galley boy on the Rievaulx and Ribblehead 1959 - 60. Noticed the name Dave Caton on your 'crew list' who must have been on the Rievaulx about the same time.
Best wishes to all,
Charlie (Smith) ex South Bank Teeside

Hi Rhodius I see you mention a 3rd mate Charles Ingham with you on the Redcar. He was the husband of a bridesmaid (Julie) at our wedding in 1964 and they both lived for some time in Catterick and Richmond. The both parted company some years ago. Not sure were he is now except know he is retired. We are still in touch with Julie and if anyone wants we could find out how to contact him. regards, Charlesowen
