Did anyone of you sail with Mr. Anderson ?

He also came to Malaysia sometime betw. 1974-1981,..don't know if that was with Esso Scotia or another tanker.
What ports did Esso Tankers at that time arrive on in Malaysia ?

Grateful if someone can help me solve these questions.
Thanks

Best regards
Elisabeth
Hi Elisabeth, I was with Colin on the Scotia when he made the rescue. I have some information about it but only from memory, nothing official. I never met him again after that trip.
Regards, Mick

Fred Cook

Dear all

My father, Capt Frederick Cook, sailed on the Esso Fawley, Milford Haven & Aberdeen (among others) from the 60s to the 90s. He always spoke fondly about his days at sea. I wondered if any of you remember him?

I remember being taken aboard the Lincoln in Bantry Bay possibly 66/67 with mumps and a local doctor having to be called. We lived in the North of Ireland at the time and had driven down to Cork as she was discharging. Someone put me on a bike and cycled me down the length of the deck, carrying me up to the Capt's cabin.

Lincoln had a bad fire 71/72 ? in the Channel loaded with naptha...Some disturbed seaman in the linen locker with drink and cigarettes. HMS Leander stood off as she burned...touch and go for a few hours. Anyone on board remember that?

Anyway grateful for any stories as I am writing up his years in 39-46 in the Atlantic.

Thanks
Hi Dave,
My father, Des Templeman, was the mate on the Lincoln at the time of the fire and fought it using a smoke hood along with others using bottled breathing apparatus.
Dad finished his career as Master on the Warwickshire and sadly passed away last year.

Hi Mike,

My father, Des Templeman, was on the Warwickshire, probably as mate during the dry docking in Bremerhaven.
I remember it because I got to stay in a hotel there with my mother & sister for the duration of the docking.

Hi Steve'
Yes I remember Des very well, he'd been mate prior to the drydocking, and he went up to Master for the period of the docking and for the trip afterwards. Des was a hard taskmaster but a very fair man and I had the highest respect for him, please give him my regards if he is stll with us.
Regards,

Mike Irwin.

Hello again Dave,

Having spoken to my mother, I believe the fire that you mentioned may have actually occurred on the Newcastle
