G'day all, I was on SS Hemiplecta 1961 - 1963.
Anyone know where I can find details of the trips around that time?
Many thanks

A great site listing all the ships. My short career with Shell ran from 1960 to 1964, as an deck apprentice and was a period of time that I look back on with great memories.
I would love to hear from anyone who Joe Shell sent on MAR courses, particularly MAR6, which I was on in 1962. Alan Haynes, Mike Dennis,Steve Little Frank Todd etc.
Hello. My father Gerald Mcvey and he was in the merchant navy from around 69 to 71. He sailed on six shell tankers during that time. If anyone knows him please get in touch.
Dear visitors, I was a 5th engineer on the tts "Kaap Hoorn" from 18/01/68 untill 28/12/1968.

Good to see the pictures of the vessel. It was a good time, but also hard working in the tropics with the turbines of the cargopumps!!
Many 5th engineers should know that!
Regards, Gijs.

It was a great pleasure when acting as the Port Agent at Lyttelton for the Taiko and other Coastal Tankers.
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.
