03/13/2006 - 10:27 Hi interesting site , I served with Joe Shell as a radio officer from Sept 65 till approx 1970, I think it was the SS Vitrina that we took up to Nah Bay in Vietnam and were fired at with RPGs we used to run avgas to the Americans an offload at Nah Bay or Nah Trang Bay (a 7 hour tie up ). I also sailed on SS Alinda, SS Hemicardium STS Hatasia, SS Hemisinus, SS Lucellum and M.V. Lucigen. I had a ball tramped S Africa, Borneo and Japan. Had the pleasure of meeting many great blokes. thankyou Jerry
