Clifford Wall again. A slight error on my part. My first ship was the San Syvestre 1. I saee that the ship shown was a later ship of the same name.
Any of my shipmates still around?

The San Sylvestre was my first ship, having just joined the M N after 12 months as Boy Entrant in the RAF. Going down river I had my first and last taste of Sea Sickness. Felt lousy for 3/4 days until the cook came down to my cabin and hauled me out and made me scrub the galley deck until I got so fedup I forgot about feeling sick. Never sick again no matter what the weather. First trip was to Curacao.
Two years later sailed on the sister ship San Salvador. Tankers became my ship of choice. 'Those were the days'
