Anybody here sail with KSCo? I did one trip with them as 3rd Mate in 1974. Mate was a splendid chap named Peter Everett. He later gained command with them and appeared in a national newspaper after rescuing a boatload of Vietnamese boat people in the S China Sea.

Ksc

Peter

Posted reply some time ago, seems it never got through for some reason.
I sailed and worked ashore with UASC(KSC) for 20 years. Knew Peter Everitt very well indeed, he sailed Master for some years until unfortunatly the company changed over to Indian Officers.

I had an interview lined up with KSC in 1974 but chose instead to sail with SSM (mistake as it turned out)
I had an interview with them in 1976, where they scoffed that whilst the vessel I was on, Clan Alpine, was the newest cargo ship in our fleet it was older than all of theirs.

Whilst working my notice on that voyage I thought I might as well write to all the companies that were advertising. I ended up with Harrisons(Clyde)(the best move I ever made!!!).

Another refugee from Aulis was Jim Turner, Assitant Warden who also went to KSC as Marine Personnel wallah.

Anyone remember Satchiko?

Does anyone remember Satchiko? - I think she was a mature student (learning English) who used to come aboard KSC ships in Yokohama with her photo albums.
She would set out her photos, usually in the bar, for all to peruse and maybe see yourself a few trips back, or recognise old shipmates. "Satch" would also paint portraits and cut hair - when invited down to the saloon for a meal (which was often) she'd go through the complete menu - salad as well as the main course.

Regards,

Steve.

Satchiko

Steve

Memories. I remember her very well, she was part of the fittings in Yokohama for many years. In fact i have some photos of her somewhere.
Many guys tried to romance her but to my knowledge no one suceeded.
As you say she was there for the food!!
I met her when i was ashore with UASC again in Yokohama, she was alway made welcome by Tokyo Office guys, last I heard was she married.

Happy days.

Hi Tom,

Thought that would get you up from the engine room!

I was sorting through a few things and came across a water colour portrait "Satch" did of me - must have been when on Al Ahmadiah.

What a character she was - glad to hear she's spliced.

Happy Days indeed!

Steve.

I sailed with Kuwait Shipping (shortly to become United Arab Shipping Co) from 1976 to 1980 as Purser/Chief Steward - Ibn Bassam, Ibn Duraid, Al Salehiah, etc (see my profile) --- any memories of that period would be welcome.

my one memory of chief stewards in ksc is that they thought it was thier money they were spending,although in fairness most of them were ok.
does anyone remember a guy called peter porter?i think he went to work ashore in kuwait.
what ever happened to all the people who worked for them.
i sailed on loads of the old ships,ahmadiah,salamiah,mubarakiah,those were the days,six weeks at anchor in mauritius.
interesting reading.keep it going

Did my last trip at sea on M.V. Danah, which was operated by P.&O. on behalf of Kuwait Shipping Company. I joined her in Middlesbrough in July 1979, and left in Chiba (Japan) in January 1980.
