Pat,

A warm welcome aboard 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!

A very belated response, but I sailed on Esso Tankers during that period, having been transferred to Esso from Stanvac. These were: York, London, Warwickshire, Preston, Dublin, Salisbury, Wandsworth, Durham, Edinburgh and Portsmouth. I was J/E initially on Dublin, Warwickshire, and Edinburgh, then promoted to 4/E on Wandsworth. Then back to Warwickshire as 4/E and then on to Portsmouth and promotion to 3/E.

Now on to Warwickshire again as extra 3/E before joining Preston as 3/E, then back to Edinburgh as 3/E followed by a delay while sitting tickets then Edinburgh again as J2/E. Then three trips in York as J2/E, rejoining after leave as S2/E.

One eventful trip to Nigeria during the Biafra war in Durham as J2/E, followed by Salisbury and finally London as S2/E, at which time a certain female persuaded me of the errors of my wandering ways and suggested that I would be much better off in a warm bed with her than in a lonely bunk in the middle of the Atlantic. No contest!
