It may be worth looking at the proceeding couple of magazines. I found that the ones relevant to myself were one/two months after I joined my first Mimco vessel.

All information for inclusion in the Mariner had to be submitted at least 6 weeks before the publication date. Sadly everyone involved in the production of the magazine is long dead so I can't tell you whether the information about the posting of R/Os to their ships was obtained by the editor from the many depot staff clerks (who made the appointments) or from the Head Office personnel department, where there was kept a central record on hand-written cards. The central records were only up-dated at intervals, when the depots submitted info about their new appointments to Head Office. That could introduce significant delays.

Never regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many. Don't worry about old age - it doesn't last.

Any body know what happened to P.W. Lougher. I did my ticket with him in Manchester in 1955-56. He claimed to be ex university and I think he was a Kiwi,reading through the magazines I see he only spent a short time at sea ,then he appeared to rise through the ranks ashore.There is even a picture of him getting married. He spent some time at Liverpool and then went to work in the London Office. He is mentioned quite a few times then he disappears.
