Anco Ville

Mant Thanks, Ruud,
I should have spotted that one in the 1999 Fleet list
for Stolt, as she is the same build year and same DWT as STOLT SPUR.
That is a new ANCO partner to add to the list. Oddly enough, I had
not even found in Eriksbergs list the ANCO VILLE. A bit of an
uncharacteristic name "VILLE" for ANCO. I'll have to re-check my
lists again ....

Fine set of pictures of her in a storm at
http://www.geocities.com/kp_diver/index111TheStorm.html

Sincere Thanks,
Best Wishes
Raymond

Ahoy Raymond,

You're welcome, glad being able to find/post this one.
Hope you can use these info.
Nice set of "stormy" picies from her, when I saw them, immediately remembered me the old days, been quite some times in the same conditions.
Keep the good work going!!!!!

Nice site Raymond.
I had the pleasure of sailing in Anco Charger as the man from the ministry from Oct 1983 to Mar 1984 when she was running for the MoD. Captain was a delightful man called Kerry Lewis from St Austell. My No 3 son was conceived onboard on the only night my wife visited the ship in Fawley - she having driven down from Scotland. A subsequent letter received from Captain Lewis in Dec 84 revealed that the "Charger" had quite a reputation for onboard conceptions.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time out of the MoD on Anco Charger with a fine bunch of men who didn't give me too hard a time!

Thanks Ron and King Rat ...
currently building a website of 1Mb pics of PZ reg vessels,
but I will be adding a lot to the ANCO site later this year,
more pictures and more ships to be added. I'll let you know
when it's ready.
I do like to hear stories of onboard experiences; in wildlife,
the better the surroundings and the better the food, the more
youngsters they have!!
Best Wishes, Raymond

You just missed me, Sir.

I was Senior operator the voyage before with Captain Lewis. (30.04.83 - 20/08/03).
On arrival at Port Stanley I had injured my hand getting the after Stores crane ready just hours before.
Captain Lewis arranged for me to go ashore in the next day's liberty boat.
The Man that came out to take me, and to deliver our mail, was none other than Sir Rex Hunt. Captain Lewis, in his unique style, lamented on my return that "How come You're here five minutes and get to meet him, yet I never have?".

Regards,

Jasper

For Jasper: I remember the talk of the man with the injured hand. Hope it is OK in this day and age.
Kerry V Lewis was a damn fine OM and a pleasure to sail with. (Never did find out what the V stood for.

Thank you Hugh - it has been accompilished with the very kind help of a lot of people. I have a number of updates in the pipeline; I am currently working on another project on Royal Navy ships visiting Mount's Bay, and the last days of Warspite, and I am transcribing the Casualty list for HMS Barham.
When I have finished that, I will get back to Athel and Anco ships - a lot of new pictures and more information.
Best Wishes, Raymond

Thanks Ruud, I most certainly can; My start date for Athel/Anco updates has been delayed, I was so enthralled with writing the Charles Lewis story.
Best Wishes, Raymond
