|08/25/2017 - 13:16||I had a fantastic surprise a couple of weeks ago. Ivor Newbury got in contact with me through this site. We sailed together on the Desmoulea 60 years ago. He was the R/O and I was first trip D/A. He remembered when we were berthing in Bombay we were rammed by a tug and spent 3 weeks having a new plate fitted to the hull. He only lives 30 miles from me so he and his wife came to see me and my daughter. We had a great time together swinging the lead. I'm 77 and he is 78.|

|02/04/2015 - 13:22||It is with sadness that I have to tell you that my wife Shirley crossed the Bar on the 22nd January. Many of you will have remembered us during the 30yrs I was with Shell. We had many adventures which I have recorded on this site. We met when Shirley was 16 and I was 19, we have 2 children, 5 grand children and 2 great grandchildren. We were married for 51 yrs. Shell still look after us and the a Shell Pension rep visits us regularly to see if we are OK. What a company to have worked for. The funeral is at Kings Lynn Crematorium on the 12th Feb.

|11/03/2014 - 18:39||Hi Kees Helder, many thanks for the information and pictures of the Metula. Are you able to tell me which Dutch "M" boat had a rendevous with the Las Palmas helicopter. It arrived out of the blue an hour before contact was made with the ship. The helicopter landed on deck but not in the hellipad. The rota blades struck an obstruction and shattered. Part of a blade penetrated the accommodation bulkhead into a 5/E's cabin who fortunately was on watch. The ship had to put into Las Palmas to land the helicopter. Many thanks Bernard Reynolds|
|10/13/2014 - 15:57||Hi Derek, you are listed as having sailed with me, if so have you any idea which ship. All the ships I sailed on are listed under my name and the dates I was on them. Rgds Bernard Reynold|
|02/02/2014 - 00:27||Hi Ron, great to hear from you after 56 years. An other D/A Achatina who was on the maiden voyage made contact with me in 2009. Colin Mclean he now lives in Canada. I sailed on the Achatina 4 times, she was my favourite ship. Do you remember two Norweigen 2/E's who sailed on that voyage. My wife & I got chatting to this chap in a Resturante in Rotterdam. He said that he was the C/E off a Norweigen chemical Tanker. I said that I was the C/O off the Shell tanker Achatina. He said he sailed on the maiden voyage. Needless to say we had a lot to chat about especially about Jimmay Britain.|
|10/05/2013 - 12:00||I have just been given details of two books written by Shell Seafarers. The first is by Roy Philpott, a Marconi Radio Officer. He did his training on several Shell Ships . His book is "20 Years Behind The Antenna Mast" and is publish on the same web site. The 2nd is "Under a Yellow Sky" by Simon Hall who was a D/A with Shell. His web site is "underayellowsky.com"|
