You name is familiar as one of the cadets in WELLPARK in '79. Were you in a group that paid off in Groote Island, Gulf of Carpentaria about Feb 1980?

Coincidence, or memory problem?

Hi, I had a good cadet, pal then, but I recall his name was Kingman, Steve Kingman, from Dawlish, in Devon? Are you one and the same?

I seem to recall the name Simon Kingham. I joined the Wellpark in Nagasaki in August or September 1979.
The trips to China were very interesting to say the least.
I was a stammering first tripper by the name of Graeme MacKenzie.

Hi Simon, I remember Simon Kingman joined the Wellpark a couple of months after me.
I'm not familiar with the 3rd mate Duncan McCall that you mentioned.

After paying off the Wellpark I had 4 weeks leave and joined the Cast Gull in Bakar, Yugoslavia and was amazed at the vessel tied up nearby - yep, the Wellpark!

Hello Graeme
from my dis book i paid off the cast gull on the 8/3/80 in Bakar, had my wife and daughter with me , if memory serves i seem to remember lots of problems getting out of the country , as there was a problem with Tito ???
Also a couple of days before arrival there , we were all in the bar and there was a slight bang , somebody said oh thats the emergency fire pump starting , they are testing it .It wasnt until the pilot boarded and he pointed out the large bulge in the ships stbd side just ford of the bridge in area of the slop tank . Did anything come of this , or have i just invented it .

Hi Mike,

I see from my diary that I joined the Cast Gull on 10th March 1980.

I'm not aware of any damage to the hull.

The Wellpark was in nearby Rijeka at the time.

We sailed on 12th March for Turkey.
