Hi there!!!

FINALLY,I've managed to find my way into the 'bilges', will be tracing lines for a while, finding my way around.
I was with ESSO in the early '60's for around 6 years and it left an indelable mark on me! Great days.
Now retired, I meet up with an old mate who sailed with Ambrose,Davies & Mathews out of Swansea for the Far East and talk of his life then ( from '33 to '53).He sailed as cabin-boy to become Chief Steward If there's anyone out there who sailed with that Co. they might remember one Laurie Howard Booth.
I would love to hear from you and maybe get info. to jog the old fellow shipmate' memories. Anything will do but list of ships names would be very welcome. Thanks once again, Juan

Welcome aboard, Juan.
I've moved your post into it's own thread for a better response.
I hope the crew will be able to help with your query.
Meanwhile carry on exploring the ship and enjoy the trip.

You will certainly spark many happy memories when you have a chance to explore our threads and, who knows, you may even re-establish contact with old shipmates.
