My favourites:

Salmaster and Uplifter for seagoing and the type of work. But Blakeney, Cromarty and Ensleigh for the experiences they gave me!

No doubt PAS/RMAS Cockchafer. Great Crew with a Great Crew, very much missed.

Confiance - out of Portland 1972, went to Malta when Mintoff kicked us out. Myself ( chest larger than my stomach in those days ) Gunner Toleman 2nd Eng, John Baker 3rd Eng, and an excellent Engine-room staff. Horace Birt Master, Tony McKinder Mate, Tommy Butcher 2nd Mate, a very safe set of hands. Good fun, hard work, but paid well. Six Paxmans to look after, no mean feat. We were on a couple of hours notice for something like four months.

Correction to my last. Albert Palmer was 2nd Mate, Tommy Butcher joined later. All very safe seafarers.

Tony was Horace Birt related to Harold Birt or Alex Birt from Rosyth? I seem to remember Harold saying his family came from Portland originally.

Touche - we were in East Kent (South Foreland L/H) about four weeks ago now. Great place to stay and fabulous cliffwalks, my old childhood stamping ground. Definitely God's Country!
