Hi Old Ship Mates...

Any old sailors from my days in British and Commenwealth still out there..

I sailed on the Clan Macdonald, also some of the Bowater ships back in the 60's.. as a deck cadet.

Hi George,
I was a deck cadet in B&C from July 1959 to November 1962.
Sailed in Campbell, King George, Davidson and Buchanan as a cadet, then Sutherland as 3rd Mate, before leaving and joining City Line
Just joined the "club" and enjoying the experience

B&C and Bowaters

Hi George,
I sailed with B&C on the Bowater ships, there is a Bowater website
bowatersteamshipcompany.no-ip.com
You should check it out, you can have your name added to the vessels that you sailed on.
All The Best
Geoff Bray
