Hi Tonga/Ninja. Well done Ninja the guy was May and he was mate when I was there. Yes Mark, John(General) Jubb joined us later on. Ninja I was also there when Malcom & his wife were onboard. I think their name was Grey(Gray) Also on there with a 2/O John Shepherd and his wife Lou,Ch.Stwd at the time was John Ronicle(a Cheat) He got the empty beer kegs filled in Australia and charged UK prices. He would have made over £1000 profit but I happened to see an invoice the contents of which I passed to Roy Southgate. Needless to say the error was corrected. Its rather strange what one remembers when the memory is jogged.NINJA said:Memerory recall is a terrible sign of old age. The earliest voyages of the Cavendish the mate was Malcolm from St Ives, I cannot remember his surname, his wife Diane accompanied him, a later voyage I did, General Jubb was 1/0 and " Maggie May" was 2/0.
'O' happy days.
Hi Ninja.NINJA said:Hello Leo,
You are spot on, it was Malcolm Gray, we paid off together in Santos as well as Roy Southgate, Dai Davies and John Ronicle, (enough said). When the Faraday was new out of the yard Maggie Maywas 2/0 and Roy Southgate was 1/0, one of natures gentlemen. I often wonder what happened to Roy, I think Mitch said he ended up in living France.
