Sorry to be the bearer of some very sad news, but I heard from the UK that Willie Lauchlan passed away on Monday 9 June.
Willie & Inge had moved from Dunoon to Perthshire, but I understand they had recently moved back to the West again....Largs I think.
My deepest sympathy and condolences go to Inge and the family.

Just come across this thread, I worked for Stirling for a brief spell in 99, was on Spica with Simon Rawlinson and Derek Landels down below, Vince Kelly was skipper and Mike McKay was Mate I think, can't remember any others just now.
Came across Simon off W Africa pumping fuel to us from a Toisa boat and Derek is with Maersk now.
I went to Maersk after Stirling when I got paid off after they laid ships up as the oil price plumetted and had to go as last in first out, I was quite disappointed as I thoroughly enjoyed my short spell with Stirling, I have never experienced the same cameraderie since that time.
After 11 years at Maersk I moved on to Hartmann Offshore where I am now half way through my last trip, in August I start with Svitzer in Pembroke Dock as technical super so I'm hanging up my sea boots at last.
Best wishes to you all
Graham

Sorry to hear of Johns passing, I think he was our Mate on the opposite team on Spica, at such a young age as well.

Only ever sailed with John once. He was Mate with my dad(Jim Whitley) for a long time. My dad never gave praise easily, but reckoned John was the best mate ever. Very sad to hear of his passing. Do you know if Dick Mean is still about ??

Very sorry to hear about John. Only sailed with him once, but my dad (who had him as Mate for a long time) reckoned he was the best ever, not a bad comment from my "old man". Is Dick Mean still about ??

Regarding Dick Mean. I sailed with him on and off for over 10 years. We kept in touch after his retirement and would visit occasionally. Last heard he had gone out to Thailand and was living with his son Andy. This must have been sometime late 16 early 17. Not sure of the circumstances but our Christmas card was returned this year with Deceased across it. Think he made it into his 80s.
Jim Simpson.

Does not look like it Trevor - all seem to have migrated to Facebook closed group 'An Even Curiouser Venture.' Still seem to be well visited with nearly 27000 hits, but no takers! Have sent you a PM.

Yes I have many pictures of the stirling ash and other Stirling offshore vessels, I just cannot scan them as they are all rather large original pictures which I found in my fathers attic when I sorted it out a few month ago. I was wondering what to do with them and therefore did a search as I can imagine anyne who was connected with the comany would love to have them... If you have a FB page message me You can message me on my FB page with your contact details etc., If you want them??? Regards dodie FB Kenya Couk [email protected]
