Hi Steve, I remember sailing with you on Fernie - joined in Rotterdam jan 1972 -sailed to tuberao, Brazil, then Kimitsu near Yokohama, then Dampier in Aussi where I got pissed with engineer cadet James MacGregor and almost jumped ship (fortunately we sobered up and realized a silly idea) then back to Rotterdam. I was a 1st trip junior R/O and usually beat you at table tennis in the room next door to the bar. According to my discharge book the old man was Capt. John V. Wallace, a very descent bloke from Kent.
I was with marconi and left a year later joining Safmarine then P & O passenger division for 2 years then more years freelancing, 9 years in total. Now retired and live in Devon.
Nice to see your name in print.
Best regards,
Gordon Bryson

Nice to see the Fernie pictures, I also recognise a few names mentioned in these posts. The Fernie was my first ship back in 1974, joined at Rotterdam to Tubarao, On to Japan via Panama and down to Dampier then back to Rotterdam. Happy days��

I remember you Jim, I was one of two first trip deck cadets under your charge. You promised us a good time when we got to Tubarao, but the captains wife was on to you and she took us ashore and kept an eye on us. (Was so looking forward to Tubarao after all your tales of the local girls) oh well happy days.

Was lucky enough to work with Pete Chapman in late 1980's on ADNATCO tankers, when i was second. Not been able to contact him for last couple of years sadly.

I have quite a few photographs whilst being built.

Was Chas. D. Abbott the Building Master ?
