Hi George,Just found this site, and read a few of the comments, I joined the Burmah Cameo in Curacao in 1974 and did a very enjoyable 9 months (hard going but plenty time ashore), Sad time when we lost the first mate when tank cleaning, I also served on the Burmah Peritod did the first dry dock in Japan, and then joined the Severn Bridge, Left Denholms then and joined Turner Diesel in Glasgow and did a few more trips with various shipping lines.
