Bill,

Bit of a long shot, but in the fifties I sailed on a tanker named, "El Mirlo", owned by Lobitos oilfields of Peru and managed by C.T. Bowring - any connection? If not, welcome to the site anyway!

My late father Michael Ogden (died 24/11/2001) was Captain of the El Lobo (I think it was previously named Regent Caribou) - I went aboard her a few (I'm Mark) along with my mum; brother (Colin) and sister (Pam)

I was junior R/O on El Lobo July to November 1972. I remember the Old Man was V. Piper but there was another OM, can't remember his name and signature in discharge book is obscure.

Others OM were Ken Lyall, Roy 'Tubby' Knowles. Don't know if they are still around - I spoke to Captain Piper when my father died and also to Ken Lyall. Both naturally well retired at the time - Piper lived on the Wirral and Lyall on the West Coast of Scotland.

Hi ogdenm
I assume you are referring to Captain Roy Knowles of Bowrings.
It is my sad duty to inform you that Roy had not been well for sometime and that he 'crossed the bar' here in Brixham just 3 weeks ago.
One of life's true gentleman.

The m stands for Mark - I fondly remember Roy - he was 1st mate to my dad on a number of occasions before he got his command; never saw him unhappy, always approachable even though I was but a lad sailing as a 'supernumary' steward, freeloading a holiday with my dad.

Ellobo

I sailed on the Ellobo in summer 1972. I was a catering boy when I joined the ship. I thought the ship was very friendly looking when I boarded her at Stanlow Oil refinery. I remember the small swimming pool, which I think was forward. We had boiler problems and were stuck in Curacao for three weeks while engineers sorted it out. I spent many an evening walking around Willemstad. About a week into our stay at Curacao the passenger liner Empress of Canada came in and docked across the harbour from us. One afternoor three or four of us went across the EC because our mess man, Dicky Spring, knew crew on the EC. Anyway we got to the EC and went for a drink in the crews bar. When it was time to go Dicky, who was drunk, decided to swim back to our ship. He went up to the passenger deck about 30 or 40 feet from the water and dived in. I tried to stop him but his mates held me back. Dick died that day, he hit the water wrong and broke his neck. We buried him in Curacao in one of those hole in the wall graves. I was one of the coffin bearers. Does anyone remember this?

That was a very sad experience for you Mike, especially when you were so young. Sadly silly ideas have resulted in many sad events both for the victim and others who were with them. I am sure someone on here will recall the event as the EoC would have had a large crew and the information of the event would have circulated round the vessel.
