Kelvin Hughes Sparkies

I'm looking to hear from anyone who was a KH Sparkie in the late 70's / early 80's when Rita Roth was in charge.

Welcome to the crew from East Yorkshire.
Once you've found your way around you'll find a lot of us about but maybe not so many KH.
Radio Room's behind the bridge and the bar's two decks down.
Enjoy the trip.

Welcome to Ships Nostalgia, Tony.
There are many Sparkies onboard and, with any luck, you'll find some old shipmates here.

I never worked for Kelvin Hughes but sailed on some ships with their equipment. For some reason the name Rita Roth rings a bell. Did they have any freelance work?

I did start a radiotelegram tete a tete with one of the girls in the stores department and had big plans to visit her when I went to Riversdale and she left Hainault and returned to Dublin, unfortunately something else cropped up. Oh what might have been. A fork in the road....
