Palm Line Deck Cadet/Officer--Mike Farrell


Apologies if you've already read this post, I placed it as a general posting but now being more specific by putting it on the Palm Line forum pages.

In the period 1963/65 Mike Farrell and I attended South Shields Marine College on a pre sea cadet course, we were great buddies, he went onto to join Palm Line as a deck cadet, I went onto sail with PSNC as a Nav App. Initially, after leaving college and going our separate ways, we kept in touch but inevitably lost contact. I've often wondered how his career and life developed and it would be great to satisfy my interest. I went with him to Newcastle station when he left to join his first ship in August 1965, I was so envious because I was still waiting for news of my first ship. I completed my apprenticeship but then left the MN to work ashore, something I've often regretted.
