Welcome aboard Ian.
Plenty of lads in the crew from those companies so you'll no doubt be hearing from some of them soon.
Meanwhile find your way around the ship, join in and enjoy the trip.

Smile Welcome

Ian,

A warm welcome to the site from the Isle of Anglesey, I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy the SN experience!
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.
Good luck!

Hello Ian. A very warm welcome from Wales, hope you enjoy your voyage on board the S.N. You will soon find you are among probably the finest batch of Men ever assembled on one vessel. As for your list, I did serve on board The Vacuum Pioneer, a coastal Tanker,belonging to Stephenson Clarke, she was contracted out to Mobil Oil when I was on her back in May to August 1968.
Harvey.

Hi Ian, I am from your neck of the woods, Forest Hall, just north east of Newcastle and served with the RFA in the 60s. You will no doubt find people you sailed with on this site.

Hi Harvey - nice to make your acquaintence. I worked on the "worthing" ( stephenson clarke) for about 18 months during the 70/71 period. Great little ship with a small but good crew. We mainly carried grain around the UK / Ireland / French & Netherland coasts.
Bon voyage

Hello Ian. The pleasure is all mine old friend, we must have done pretty much the same run, U.K. coast.Poole, Ipswich, Swansea then over to the continent, couple of places down the River Seinne, Gravenchon and Petite Couronne, Antwerp in Belgium, Amsterdam & Rotterdam and Hamburg.
Cosy little crew, great little job, I only left her to be home for my 21st Birthday P**s up, then back Deep Sea. Got 3 month out of her thats all. Enjoyed it though.
Harvey
