I sailed on the oronsay around 1959,my name is Paddy McDonnell,
I'm from Newry NI,now living in british Columbia,in Kamloops far from the sea. I was a B/R stewart on the Oronsay.
Just checked my D/book,I was on the Orontes in 1959 till mar,1960 and the the Oronsay in April 1960 till Dec 1960.
Anyway,I hope someone out there remembers me,it would be great to get a contact with some of my old ship mates.

Orion. Oronsay.

Hi Paddy. We were like two ships that past in the night. My last trip in the ORONSAY , was26/nov/1959-8/April 1960 I was night/ telephone/ operater that trip.So as I left you joined.I can't remember exactly when either the ORONTES or the OTRANTO . I sign on crew mess man it was winter freezing cold / walk on board down to the crew mess,it was hot and humid I said to myself no way if it's like this now what will it be like in the Red Sea so I turned round and walk off her never went back.anyway hope you catch up with old shipmates.all the best, Happy New Year Narra.
