Hi everyone. This is Brian Bailey. I joined Silver Line in 1976 as 1/0 on Alva Star. Then I went mate on Silvereagle, Alvega, Alvenus and finally two trips on Alrai before leaving and coming ashore in 1981. Went into cargo and ship inspection then in Saudi, Dubai, Zug (Switzerland), Singapore and finally Manila where I finally retired and now live.

I remember Vaughn (I think on Alva Star and Silvereagle), Norman Evans, Tony Attwood, Howard Heaton, Allan Eden, Mike Wiggins, Bev Dyke and Andy Hunter.

My memory is fading a bit these days though.

Best regards to all.

I'm sure I remember you, Mike. It must be from the Alvega. I was 4/E at the time.

I mentioned you - although not by name - in Post 10 of this thread from 2013:-

Also Post #268 , this thread.

You might find this interesting. A radio office also on the Silvercove, but a little earlier

I sailed with both Jim and Cyril together on the Arapaho. Jim had his wife and daughter with him and as already mentioned, Jim was a true gentleman and a great Old Man. Cyril was my Chief Engineer and there is no way you would think they were brothers! Even though my memories of Cyril were of him being pretty ferocious, I must have impressed as he promoted me to Third Engineer on 29/01/1986. This was followed immediately by a 16000 hour overhaul of one of generator engines. That was my last trip on the Arapaho and went on to do another couple of trips on the Shawnee before getting made redundant once again in June 1987.

Hello Mike

Andy Biegala here, wonder if you remember me from Silvercove.

I was a first trip cadet. We ran a ships "newspaper" for a while as I had a portable typewriter. You would get the news off the radio and dictate it to me and we would top up with other things such as Ken Noonan (3/O) dirty jokes.

A great ship, my first and for sheer enjoyment never bettered.

Ashore in Nottingham nowadays.
