Wondering if any of the N.Z.S.Co lads can recall the name of the Engineer Superintendent in Liverpool? And the 3 "Ds" Surveyors?

Looking at old communications and came across your name.
Think I may have sailed with you on the Nottingham in the early
50's. If you are still active would liker to hear how you are.
At that time the master was Capt. Alderman, C/E Mr. Kennedy

After an apprentiship with Thos & Jno Brocklebanks I went to NZS as it looked like a good move with the Indian trade getting more and more locked out by flag preferance.
NZS/Federal ships:
Cornwall March 1963 to January 1965
Dorset Coasting July 1965
Paparoa August 1965 to January 1966
Medical Leave
Coasting Otaio and Hororata and various in port only jobs 1966 April to 1966 September
Huntingdon 1966 September to 1967 February
Somerset 1967 April to 1968 February
Hertford 1968 May to 1968 September
Surrey Coasting 1969 February/March
Manapouri 1969 March to 1969 June
After that over to OCL and from there down hill

Fair selection of Vessels Ian. I was on the Paparoa in the late fifties.
She was at that time a very "Happy Ship".Thanks for reply
