Hi Robinj,
No i was sent by Houlders to join the Cerinthus, which turned out to be a Tanker owned by Hadley Steamship Co. I was a bit disappointed as I had been with Esso and I wanted to get away from Tankers. As it was it turned out to be a good ship, we ran over to Curacao (Happy Valley) Venezuela, Rotterdam, and back to Thameshaven. I was offered an Ore Carrier down to Vitoria in S. America, but I declined and Joined Drake Shipping. a Ship called Merchant Royal. We did a round the World voyage and paid off in Glasgow.
Thanks anyhow for your message, always nice to hear from you again. Best Regards. Trivetts
