New member hello


I joined Harrisons Clyde as a deck cadet in 1968. My first ship was Verdala . At that time she was on the Puget Sound timber run to Japan. Voyages were long in these days and my first home leave was after one year. I then joined Vennachar in Japan and stayed with her as Cadet and later Third Mate, tramping around the world until I joined the Royal Hong Kong Police in 1973. Would love to hear from any old shipmates.
