Have only recently found your web site and enjoyed reading
various letters in "Guestbook". I spent 6 years with Shell Tankers from 1955 to1961 & finally left the sea in 1965 after
a spell with Silverline & Gulf Oil.
My first Shell Tanker was "Volsella" under Capt.Thompson, the ship being a very happy one. I remember playing table tennis with the 2nd mate (Eric Phillips poss) and spent a long time on his watch. I later sailed with Capt.Brittain which was
not so good!!!!. Does anyone remember?
