My Father, Chief Engineer David H Smith worked for Shell and sailed on many ships, including the Vanessa, Limopsis, Lotorium and others whose names I have forgotten. He is now 90 years old and suffering very badly from Dementia and being cared for by his 80 year old wife, Jean. Dad was one of the very first to receive the Merchant Marine Medal, he continued working until his late 70’s eventually retiring from Arklow Shipping. Even though he is very ill he still remembers his days at sea.
Dave Smith, a very proud 55 year ild son.
