Hi Rich
Your post just seems to have come through now.June 59,I was on the
Livorno.In 61 Jan I joined the LA HORTENSIA,a 15 month trip.After that I was
back on the Marengo,June 62.I guess we have just been missing each other.
Did you use to put the rope lifeline along the main deck on the Marengo.Is
that the ship you could go through the engine room to get forward ? You
certainly was a glutton for punishment been with Capt, Gillis most of the time.
Regards Artie

Hi Arty & Richie,
My brother took me through to Hull last week, I couldn't believe what I saw.

Different generations different ideas I guess.
No Monument pub,No Town Dock, No Regal and Electricity showrooms, in Fact, No Hull.
Thank God for our memories

Hi Richie
We have certainly crossed paths in Wilson Line,and the pubs.
I was on the Rinaldo April 1966.Looks as if you was happy to do
the North Atlantic run.To be honest I really did'nt mind It.I only
wish my memory was up to scratch.
Regards Artie

Hi all you natives of Hull. I have read all your messages hoping to hear if anyone can remember The Albano. I did several trips on her London to Copenhagen then we were all discharged in Hull. I have good memories of Hull though I was just passing through. I with most of the others were drunk as lords. I sat in one boozer when one of your men from Hull asked me my name. He then gave me my pay off that I had dropped. All white fivers. A good honest guy. I had a job to make him take anything for his honesty. Wonder if it would happen now. Good luck to you all. Joe.

Terry Arnold

Hello Artie..I saw in the Hull Daily Mail it was Good old Terry Arnolds 70th if he was still around shame after all the years at sea to have that horrendous accident with a good buddy of mine Kenny Hales..
must admit the game fell to peaces with all this bull that has sprung up ie health and safety i have just recently witnessed 2 filipino ab's who had never been on a stage and they were both in there 30's only knot they possess in their itinerary is a bowling and a clove hitch which majority of the time ends up a cow hitch!! trouble is it's Scaffolding for everything now although safer but has its limitations.
Well I will make this months MN reunion in Hull this month so will catch up with real sailors etc....regards Geoff

Hi Geoff
I sailed with Terry Arnold he was a good mate & seaman.It was a
terrible accident in the dock. Did one of the Birch brothers survive it.
I agree with you about all the health & safety.I found it more of a
hindrance climbing around with harnesses etc,.I bet a lot went through
your mind watching the 2 filipino's on the (stage)Its all behind me now,
just lots of memories. I'm 70 next.Nice to hear from you.
Regards Artie

Yes Artie

One of the Birch boys Brian was involved..Was reading some of the other bumf on here about Capt Gillis the only guy to mark my discharge book in 40 years!!plus a pool burn down,my wife of a couple of weeks went into hospital with appendix and I got to goole as the vessel was leaving the lock so I got a taxi to pier and went out on the pilot launch he said I ain't slowing down to pick an AB up (he had free pilot age I guess) so that was that...BUT he ended up as the seamens welfare officer of Hull how hypercritical can one get

Hi Geoff
Yes I thought It was Brian Biirch.So you had a run in with Gillis.Under your
Circumstances there no way he should have marked your book,but thats
Gillis allright.He knew you was trying to get back to the ship.I never knew he
ended up seamans welfare officer (hypercritical) is the right word.

I sailed with Frank Blampey the last time was on the Bassano running from the Med to the great lakes. He was a great shipmate as was his long time friend Frankie Barker.
I paid off following an accident in Montreal in 1966, I understand Capt Gillis joined the ship just after, thank god I was not there, I had sailed with Gillis twice before on the Marengo. It was good to see so many of my old long gone friends mentioned Ron & Arthur Birch some I still see do you remember Jack Cammish.

Hi Artie, I knew the Birch brothers Ron & Arthur very well, since they all lived in Gladstone Street. I never sailed with either of them, but my late brother Brian Piercy was a close friend and shipmate of both. He also sailed in Jebsons as I think as Donkeyman, I will be seeing Jack Cammish on Friday at the Hull MNA meeting, I sailed with him on the Rotherwick Castle. I hope I'm doing this right I hav'nt posted on site before. Best regards Eddie

Hi Artie, yes I knew Maurice Grantham well, I attended his funeral service back in January. The Keith you mentioned, the only one that comes to mind is Stephenson, there was around 100 at Fridays meeting and with the tots flowing its hard to remember who was there. There was a death reported a Charlie Powell, I believe he was from the Hessle Road area, I did'nt know him very well, he was a trawler skipper. Another old seaman I was talking too was Frankie Dawes, do you know him ?, he lives in the North Hull area Regards Eddie

Hi Eddie
Keith Stephenson rings a bell,I used to see him regular on Holderness road.
I beleive he lives in Brazil street.I know he goes to MNA on a Friday.We sailed
together,mention my name to him next time you see him.I dont recollect
Charlie Powell.Frankie Dawes rings a bell.I think you got Keiths name right,now
I think about it.I had a yarn with Maurice while he was in Castle Hill.to be honest I didn't reconognise him at first,with his long hair!. Regards Artie
