Just wondering if anyone remembers MV Riseley, I signed on articles march 5th 1965 at Middlesbrough and signed off same day at Sunderland. I guess I was hired for the run, or perhaps I ''did a run'', can't remember. Any information on MV Riseley would be appreciated., what company was she etc.,
Many Thanks.
