I had a couple of mates on the Damp.
If memory serves me she was replaced by the Kelven
She also had a helm like a aeroplaone,

I seem to recall that after she changed to Australian flag, the crew painted a kangaroo on the funnel - was there some controversy about that?

Was she managed by Caltex or Howard Smith? I can't recall.

Captain2 - just read your brief profile, were you by any chance 2nd Mate on mv Howard Smith at any time?

She was managed by Sleighs'. There was some controversy over the 'roo on the funnel but it was allowed to stay. I did the last gulf run in her before she was scrapped.

Hi there Roy,
My Dad (Bill Brown) was on William Dampier i think, did you know him ? Unfortunately he passed away on 18th November, 2009. (2 x days after my birthday) (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and chemotherapy affects immune system that was not good) Born 6th October, 1930.

He got me a job on M.V. Ormiston as deck boy in 1982.

cheers,

colin

William Dampier

Started my second seafaring life as 3/o on the Dampier great ship rotten run


Hi there,
I think my Dad might have been on that ship, Bill Brown, he sadly passed away on 18th November, 2009. Born 6th October, 2009.

Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma diagnosed over a year ago and chemotherapy does not help the immune system.

He passed away 2 x days after my 45th birthday. He got me a job as deck boy on M.V. Ormiston in 1982.

Cheers,

Colin
