I am an Aussie was working on the wharfs in Durban Sth Africa trying to work my passage back when a workmate told me there as a tanker at the tanker wharf that was short of crew so I applied for a job on board, the skipper was a bit hesitant but as they were short on crew he signed me on, on the understanding that we would eventually end up in London.

ex Eagle Oil ( " San Salvador " ). Joined " Amoria " Smith's Dock, Middlesbrough for maiden voyage. Left in April 1961 to attend course at Plymouth, following which decided on complete career change ashore. ( I remember Ian Brown on this trip, I believe it was his first ship ).

Worked on the MV Amoria 1978 as radio officer. We were on the UK coast quite a bit and I never sailed on a ship before or after that rolled as much as she did.

I joined the Amoria in the summer of 1969 my last trip as an apprentice traded in the far east for the whole trip which included ripping the bottom out whilst under pilot in Da Nang on the Vietnamese coast, made it back to Jurong shipyard in Singapore and had a great drydock whilst they fixed her up.
