Hi Steve
I joined the Lutetian in M'Boro in 73 Ch.Stwd I think you were still a deck cadet shortly promoted to 3/M. Ernie Walters - Peter McGovern -Antoinne Bamber Master and Mates. Ernie Chapman Bosun Gunnar Skibusts Ab and so forth. Had a great time with that company 73 till 77 when it ceased trading except for the coaster (Londoner) remember you and your wife Jane.

Regards Ray

Good stuff Ray, the pilot employed for the single trip was Frank Richardson, he was post Ernoe and pre Richard T Mudd. ( He and Mike Courts were ex court line I think).
Remeber c/o Mike Fish - believe he was ex Harmattan, seemed to drink like a fish as well.
Dont rember the kippers and saland cream guy - not one of your specials was it!

Hi Steve, Dont Know if you remember me, I was at Trinity House with you and joind the Oregon a year or two later. Sailed on the Lawrentian for years until she was sold. Left her in Japan in 75/76. Also did a couple of trips on the Lutetian with Sam Rudaini, Ertnie Walters and a couple of the other die hards. Hope you are well.

Hi Steve,

Here is a pic of the LAWRENTIAN. Taken in the early 70's. Probably 71/72, Topping off with grain prior to sailing for Rotterdam from Canada.

Ian Good shot of her,
yes I can just remember you from that far back, I left THNS the year after you and joined the Lutetian with John Lavarack another THNS cadet.
Never sailed on the Lawrentian but visited her a couple of times in Liverpool, Larry Shipman was the mate, cant remeber who else was on at that time, John did a couple of trips on the Lawretian, met him for coffee a few months ago, funny I dont remember two old fat guys joining a cargo ship in 1970!
It was quite a coincidence in Liverpool as all three ships were in port together, Lutetian, Lawrentian and the Londoner ( second one).
Steve

Dom,
Sounds likely - full name Richard T Mudd, he was a large square set man, usually sailed with a mate called Mike Court when working for Oregon

Thumbs up Memories

Hi Steve, Barney et al.
I joined the Lutetian in Liverpool Nov '73 as cadet. Sam was the Mate, Antoine 2nd mate and Ernie was skipper. Can't remember what I was called then, probably 'Paddy'. I remember Steve's wife sewing stars on the red duster going into Auckland once as we didn't have courtesy flag on board. (I think the stars blew off at some stage, but what the hell!)
Barney, I still owe you a pint for bailing me out in Hull all those years ago! Great to browse this thread and see the names again, a real blast from the past. Hope ye are all well and prospering.

Hi Mairtin are you the Deck cadet that was on the Lutetian when I had my wife and boys on? Ray ex Ch.Stwd

Barny I think I sailed on the Lawrentian when you were 3rd/Mate and you had your wife for the voyage. Constanza then Canada for Birkenhead with grain. Skipper a South African I think he had his wife for the voyage as well.

Hi Guys! Yes I was deck cadet then. Joined Liverpool Tate and Lyle berth. We had to wait two weeks then for discharge, times have certainly changed!
We headed for London then Bremen, Aquaba, Seychelles, East Africa coast, Mauritius for sugar and back to Liverpool. What a trip for a cherry boy! I did another stint on Lutetian then, down to New Zealand for partying and flew home from there for nautical college. I had a trip on Lawerentian after that and she ended up being sold in China. I was moved to Buries Markes.
Andy Dawson was cadet with me in those days; He's an estate agent in Manchester now. Haven't meet up with him for years now. John Mellish was cadet at same time, last I heard he was working with Motorola in France. Do you guys remember a party in Opua (North Island, NZ) with all those farmer-stevedores? I think I was the only one left on board that night. Many bad heads in the morning.
Hope you are both keeping well. I'm living in Co. Kerry now, working with computers during the winter and driving a passenger ferry during the summer. Nice arrangement and far from the madding crowd.

Take care,

Mairtin,
Remember the party in Opua well, it was the chartiy ball for the local fire brigade ( Russel town) if I remember correctly. We had one hell of a night, there was a late night / early morning ferry put on to get us back, all went well except the ferry driver had been at the same party we had!
After leaving us he took the ferry back but forgot to put the ignition keys in their 'usual' spot so no ferry in the morning and a very late start to cargo work as no dockers. If you look in the gallery there is a picture of the Lutetian at Opua, it was taken by one of the AB's who was a keen photographer and developed them on board, he gave a copy to most if not all on board. A really great guy, sadly I cannot remember his name.
Steve

Hi everyone,

I don't know if anyone is still reading this thread (inactive since...August 2008) but I wanted to join just to throw in a bit of information.

Some of the posts were talking about a Captain Pease of the Londoner and then his son David Pease. Unless I'm mistaken (and I don't think I am), Captain Pease in question is my Grandpa and David Pease is my father.

I don't really have much about the ships to contribute (unfortunately I'm too young to have been involved with them), but I wanted to say that I enjoyed looking at the pictures and reading the stories regarding the ships (and people) with whom my family was involved. Any additional photos of the ship or crew would be much appreciated.

Yes Steve I remember Ken Hairs. We had docked in Rotterdam and I came home for a few days via the Hook and Kingscross, Anyway on my way back to Kingscross the Tube I was on broke down and was stuck in the tunnel. On eventually arriving in Kingscross the Boat Train had gone. I telephoned the Office and they rushed me in a Taxi, with the Ships Papers to Heathrow to catch a Flight, but I could not fly to Rotterdam I had to go to Antwerp. I then had the problem of getting from Antwerp to Rotterdam, in time for the Ship sailing. So I went to the Police and explained I was carrying very important Ships Papers. They took me in a Police Car all the way to Rotterdam and I managed to get on board in time to sail.

Take care

Ray
