Hi Nelson,

How about filling out your profile a little? Or as an American student expressed it "polishing up your resumé". What other ships were you on, and when? What have you been doing since leaving the sea?

Regards

Ron

Hi Aldinga,
Well done that man. I used to have a photo of her, taken by the chippy at the time. The "Orlando" was a really good sea ship. I was R/O on her for nearly 2 years. and we used to run from Persian Gulf to Oz most of the time, doing occasional trip to Sweden or Ravenna. Thanks again.

My late father Michael Ogden (died 24/11/2001) was Captain of the Orlando - I went aboard her a few times in Stanlow
