Hi Artie, I will mention your name to Keith, I will see him next week on the MNA trip to Bridlington. I notice you sailed on the Marengo, I was on her 21/8/61 to 19/11/61. I dont remember many of the crew, the Bosun was call Cyril ?, down below I remember Bobby Lyons, Ken Toohie, and the Burns brothers Ted & John, all slipped the hook now I'm afraid. It was on her that, I met 2 of my brothers in montreal, all on different ships, Brian was on the Athel Princess been away 11 months, another brother David was outward bound on the Consuelo. We are ended up in Joe Beef's, the mate Robertson(Marmalade) gave me the day off, that was a first!!. I have just remembered that Billy Lound AB, was aboard, as he recieved news of his brother being lost off Flamborough on a Hull trawler the Kingston Turquiose I think. Regards Eddie.

Hi Mike, although I sailed on the Borodino in April/May 1964, I cannot recall that I sailed with your father. The Tasso & Tinto both belonged to the Ellermans Wilson Line as did the Borodino, the Baltrover was a ship of the United Baltic Co. I am a member of the Hull MNA and will ask if anyone knew or sailed with your father. Regards Eddie

Hi guys,
I was with Ellerman and Bucknall, deep sea, but did the odd trip with Wilsons in the 70's. The Rapallo first of all - the O/M had a glass eye, One-Eyed Wal from Withernsea. Later the Silvio ( and sisters) with Capt. Willy White (from Goole) and Chief Engineer Sid Butlin. Can't remember much else now I'm afraid.

Hi Mike,

The name doesn't ring a bell at the moment. However somebody might come up with it.

Best regards,

Chris

Having read this thread and noted numerous ship names and comments about photos etc I would like to recommend the following publication.

WILSON LINE by John Harrower published as hardback A4 format in 1998 by the World Ship Society ISBN 0 905617 72 X

216 pages with complete fleet details and copious amounts of photos. I believe still available.

Regards
Bill

Hi John
I was in Keith Hewlet Company at one time.Forget what pub we were in.
Yes I believe there were Beech street.You know John Chapman & Terry
Have passed away.there is only Brian now.I dont think Frank Blampy ever
married,not that I know of.Artie Shaw was one of Franks drinking pals.
Frank has passed away now,he worked in one of the fish houses on Hessle
Road.The Birch brothers were his close pals.Ron & Arthur.I Have been in
your company John
Regards Artie

last time i was in hull,iwas round the victoria pier area,i was amazed when i saw the old town dry dock all silted up,i rememberworking for brighams,and having to sweep all the silt away from the outside of the gates.would,nt that drydock have been a great perminent berth for the artic corsair instead of rotting away on the river berth, i dont think she would have the expense of a survey out of water.regards to all john meekin

Hull's Old town dry dock

Joined my first ship there at Christmas 1964, MV Silver Comet, didn't they berth the Manxman there for a while as a restaurant / nightclub?, but you're right it would have made a good berth for the Arctic Corsair.
John, I think I sailed with you on the MV Wakefield of AHL, just a couple of trips to Antwerp, I think you were bosun? I was either cook or A/S, I finished up as 3rd crew barman on the Abbey boats & swallowed the anchor when they wrapped up.
cheers all
Paul

One eyed Wally Walker from Withernsea, he was the old man on Rialto in 1969/70 which was my last trip to sea. He was a t**t, gave me a single DR on discharge and 3 loggings on Christmas Day in Lagos. I let his parrot committ suicide with a large fan in his cabin. Promised by the pool we would be home for Christmas, docked in March 1970 Alexander dock in Hull a matter of a few weeks before my wedding. Union rep was unable to have the DR removed said that he had tried, been trying ever since Mr Prescott!!

Trentino

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello John,
after piecing things together I worked out that I sailed with you on the "Trentino". You were called Blackie at the time on account of your bronzy, black hair and black beard. I think you were on daywork with Keith Hewlet for that trip. I remember you and Keith on a stage fish oiling the front of the bridge before painting it. I even remember Keith saying he went through a pair of basketball shoes per trip and this was at a time when flip flops was the usual foot gear. I was sorry to read in another thread that we lost him, I sailed with him on my second trip which was the "Sicilian" he was a happy easy going guy.
I was the peggy who stupidly got drunk in Malta and was all but useless for 3 days. I doubt you will remember me, if you do it won't be for the good impression I made.
I was also on the "Cape Grenville" from June 60 till Feb 61. I was looking on the "Merchant-Navy"site and saw that you sailed on her in 60 but I think you would been been on the trip before me. When I joined her I think she had just discharge logs, I don't know where she loaded them for sure, NW U.S.A. perhaps.

Regards.
Joe Cassidy.
