A SLICE OF LIFE AT SEA by George W. Robinson, and available on Amazon, describes his time with Souters and his horrific experience after the Carlton was torpedoed in December 1940.

Hi all

going to bump this back up to the top ..... as I came across this looking for old ships I can remember

anyway my father sailed with Souters from IIRC 1973 till about 1989

so anyone remember Captain Jim Burt ?

I can remember many of the ships mentioned here and many names are very familiar to me too

I was on the " Scottish Wasa " Ex Iron Crown , when we were in a collision with the German freezer boat "Rheinelander" in September 1976 . This was on the River Scheldt I think we had a football match against them a few days before . They had oranges at half time .... we had Tennants served by the 2nd Engineers wife (Colin Wright?) and the 2nd Mates wife (Dave and Elizabeth?) Then spent about a month in Antwerp drydock . Will try to upload photos of damage , but my scanner is not too good .
