I sailed on the Haminella in the late 1960's when it was owned by Shell. It would be great to make contact with any old shipmates.
I was 5 or 6 when my uncle told me about his trips working as a sailor,at that age i decided i wil be a sailor when i`m older so the day i selebrated my 18 th birthday i went to the Hofplein i Rotterdam there was the office of Shell,and 2 months later i was on my first ship called the Dionne in the Persian Gulf at that day my life starts for real and manny ships wil follow after that and had a great time,sometimes my thouhgts wonder off and i see myself sill as that jong sailor and ik wish that i could make one more trip
Hallo Kees.

Na vele jaren toch weer eens op je site gekeken, en dan gaat mijn hart toch weer open.
Ik heb zelf ook bij Shell Tankers 25 jaar gevaren ben toen overgeplaatst naar Shell Pernis, daar mocht ik met 56 jaar
met pensioen. Maar het varen zit er bij mij nog steeds in ik al weer 13 jaar als vrijwilliger aan het werk op de zeesleper Elbe, maar ik kan nu wel merken dat de jaren nu wel gaan
tellen, ben nu haast 80 jaar dus een dure voor de Shell.
Ik hoop nog lang bij de Elbe te blijven.

Met vriendelijke groeten.

My Grandfather (William Conbeer) served as 7th engineer on the San Gaspar in 1936. Delighted to find some pictues of his ship here. I found his Seamans record card in the National Archives (Kew).
Ben ondertussen 69 jaar en denk nog(soms steeds vaker) aan mijn varenstijd terug.14 jaar van je leven is toch niet niks.Best naar mijn zin gehad net als na die tijd trouwens.Veel namen komen nog steeds bekend voor sommigen mis ik ook op de lijsten,groeten aan eenieder die zich mijn naam herinnert,tengoede of zoiets,Jasper Hoorn

My father was Jan Westeneng. I believe he sailed on the Vasum in the late 50's - early 60's. I was wondering if there was anyone who knew him or sailed with him. Sadly my father passed away last year. Many thanks
Looking for old shipmates that may have sailed with me during my time with Shell
Good Day to you all,
Like most of you I expect, I was once in the employment of Shell as a Deck Cadet, from 1974 -1978, which was my formative years, where as you could say I was growing up and less than an angel! LOL... and my apologies to any one who sailed with me and had the unfortunate experience to see me at my less than best!
I left Shell in 1978 anyone remember 'Lesley Streeter' anyway my apologies to her for what have been perceived as something personal, whilst it was nothing more than an investigation in to Shell policy, being told I was number 79th in line for promotion! LOL.
To fill you in since I left, I attained the position of Master in 1989 which I held up until 2005 after which I have been that dreaded Vetting Inspector, for various companied including would you believe 'Shell'.
Thats me, anyone who may have sailed with me please free to contact me, please do not use too many expletives! LOL.
Take care, Shell taught me all I know! reflect on that!
Yours respectfully
Deck Cadet and Third Officer in Shell (UK) Ian Kaye
I remember the great food you cooked even after all this time.
