fellow apprentices deck

Dear Graham, among your records, apart from my voyage as an eng cadet in 1962/3 on the British Vision. i remember we were two eng cadets my self and a dave pope, and two deck cadet One the name escapes me senior cadet, and one ??? Tobin who I believe wound up in the BP supply fleet, North sea or the IOlair and her sister ships as master? Is that true?? Are they still around?? especially David?? Tobin.
My own career in the marine industry found me working in the Northsea, on offshore Platforms, out of Norwich.
Any comments useful. Thanks and regards David Freeman

Dave Tobin was 2/0 late 60s / early 70s when I sailed with him. Can't remember which ship. Pleasant chap.

Dave Tobin rings a bell with me, may well have joined the Iolair as Master around the time I left her 1982 or so. Big tall chap with a beard?

Yes Dave Tobin was Master on the Iolair then, But he wasn't a tall chap with a beard I had previously sailed with Dave when he was the mate on the Ranger

David,

The only crew list I have that includes you as an EA is for Courage 9/62 and Mariner 9/63.

However I do know Dave Pope was Guardsman 4E August 1965

Dave Tobin ex 1961? BP Navigating Apprentice is listed in my NA database. CO Sulair 2/83, Master Iolair 6/84 and 1986, Seillan 1990's and Lock Rannock 2004/06

I have seen a number of your posts and realise from this one thatís and recollect I sailed with you on the Courage leaving Tyne d/d, Sept 62 I was a first trip Nav App. You joined with Verdun Orford and left at Angle Bay. I believe that John Humble relieved you.
C/E was Eddy Railton and 2/e was wee George Sandilands.
Elsewhere on SN there are posts on the Courage running on high speed on extra nozzles, I recollect this happened for a few hours in the Med. I donít think we did anywhere near 20 knots but think we did surprise a Blue Flue job!
My ship particulars for my Journal lists service speed at 14000shp as 17 knots, war speed at 18000shp as 18 knots and emergency speed of 22 knots at 24000shp.
Can you recollect the trial?
Regards
Trevor

Thank you Trevor, you have provided the necessary info on the SS Br, Courage, at the top speed power output 24.000 shp and some 20 Knots I am not sure what the fuel consumption would be probably in the region or excess of 200 tons per 24 hours.
It is good to hear from you, I cannot recollect your face and name sadly, but respect and regards too you. For me it was a happy ship and voyage.
I lost my engineer cadets ''story book=my 20 tasks'' in the fire on the 'QUEEN', so my stories as a cadet are just memories.
By the way john Humble and I were fellow class mates at Constantine TECH, Middlesbrough and later SS Marine Tech, during our apprenticeships.
