Anyone know anything about this vessel? She was owned by "Royal Mail Lines" (Furness Withy). One of my old vessels from 1965/66. Would like to know her history and what became of her.
Hi Salti Yes I was , the bosun was Cliff ,I can't remember his full name. (Dobson I think) The trip before he had disagreement with the chief cook was knifed in the stomach when we were in Cuba. Another crew member was Frank Mulligan., from Middlesbrough. I was a Deck Boy, Ken Frankin (from Whitby) was also a Deck Boy. I lived in Scarborough then.I live in York now.Hi Tony, You and I must have been on the Thessaly at the same time. I was a first trip cadet in October 1960 and remember we paid off in Immingham the day before Christmas.
Do you remeber the bosun? Big guy from London, reckoned he was a real hard case.
