In spite of your great web site I haven't been able to trace any of my dad's shipmates, although I've had some lovely replies from ex sailors.
Sadly Dad has just gone to the great oil tanker in the sky. Just wondered if anybody has a Shell tanker flag we could borrow for the funeral? We are dressing him up in his uniform and we are considering taking him out to sea one last time. Any ideas gratefully received. Kind regards, Lyn

Thanks for adding my fathers name to all the ships lists. I am still looking for his shipmates. Can't believe how often the Shell Tanker sailors changed ships - it seems like everybody moved around so much so I'm sure it must be hard to remember anybody!! I wonder why that was??
Anyway I am still hopeful.

Ref: David Whiteley
Just found my Dad's Discharge Records and so this is his seamans history:
1947/1948 ? Neverita
1948/1949 ? Tomogerus
1050/1951 ? Trochiscus
1951/1952 ? Thallepus
1952/1953 ? Dromus
1954 ? Hyalina
1954/1955 ? Thalamus
1956 ? Tagelus
1957 ? Ensis
1958 ? Neothyris
1959/1960 ? Hinea
1960 ? Hima
He may be remembered for having a pet raccoon on board, but I'm not sure which ship that was on...
Particularly interested in tracing his sudy mates Edwards and Rab - as they seem to appear in lots of photos.
My Dad is in a nursing home now and keen for any news!
