08/27/2013 - 00:11 Hello there Ronnie You probably won't remember me but we sailed on the Dorcasia in 1972. I was a young 23 year old Cheif Cook and I had my young 19 year old bride along with me,Christine, you were 2nd Steward and the cheif steward was Terry Anderson and he also had his wife Barbera with him. We are still together after 41 years, 3 girls and 4 grandsons. How about you? I note that you were ten years on contract with Shell and then you went onto P&O ferries. how long were you with them, or are you still sailing? I left in 1973 tried a coaster but it wasn't for me. Retired from BAE sytems in 2010 after 30 years (submarines) Barrow-in-Furness. Are you settled in Orkney? Christine and I have fond memories of that ship I hope you have too but I cant remember the names. The pumpman was Jeff Bowers and the bosun was Billy Lamb and the second cook was Dave Montgomery but thats about it. Well Ronnie I hope this finds you in good health mate, please get in touch, Christine is on nightshift in the hospital and she will be very pleased to here from you as I will. Best Regards Stan Parker
