Spent 7 great months on the Trewidden in 1967-68.
Canopic was a home trade run job in 1969.

It was in the late summer of 1965 when I joined my first ship The Trewidden in Redheads Dock South shields I completed 2 trips with her, sailing and completing most of the ports on the East Coast of Africa. A real eye opening for a 17year old who had never traveled before.
My third ship was the Canopic in 1966 down to Aussie and New Zealand, loved it.
I sailed in the Grenadier in 1967 only doing 4 weeks to the Mediterranean then home again, It was my first trip on a BP Tanker but not my last.
Certainly a small world
