Hello PK I made my first trip deep sea on the Egidea. That wass on the Suez crisis when she was comandeered by the government. I signed on for the following trip as she resumed the Bombay run. Don't remember the engineers but the e/r storekeeper was John Docherty , the old man was Wille Mc Vicar and the mate was a hard man by the name of Mclarty. I was a mere DHUand was the sailors peggy , were you there? JoesoapPKiddell said:ANCHOR LINE GLASGOW

PKPKiddell said:Firey, could be the same Davey Henderson that I'd sailed with, a real nice bloke ,tried to track him down when I was in Glasgow in 1962 but by then Anchor line seemed to be on the way out and I didn't have enough info to track him down.
