Starting out

Just signing on and saying Hello.
Started deep sea life after Dover rail ferries ,with B.P. on British Energy, Hussar and Grenadier.
Then a few Castle line ships. Then back to tanker T.T. Bedford new from shipyard on maiden voyage. Jumped in Rotterdam, then no more tankers. Andes, Queen Mary Trewidden, back to Dover ferries, then Port Montreal and Ronde. That finished me and I ended up in Australia for over 40 years and now retired in Budapest
