Anybody remember Nigel Roberts, I sailed on the King Alfred around 1971 as a steward. Joined her in Japan with a 2nd cook who's nickname was Jeronimo.

King Alfred

Hi I sailed on the king Alfred in 1977 I remember as we were in Alabama at the time when Elvis Presley died. We spent 4 months or so going to and fro from Tampa to Alabama taking Iron ore and Grain.
I paid off during that time.
My name is Andrew Grassby
