Happy New Year Everyone. I served on Velutina, Naninia, Tenagodus,Tagelus, Nuculana,Velletia, all in the early 1950's as a Deck Apprentice. I am still in touch with two mates, Dave Richardson and Jim Pemberton. I am 80 now, I wonder how many shipmates are still alive. Glyn Howell

When getting older, you think more about the past. I sailed on the Taria; Vasum and Kenia as a fifth eng. During my leave from the Keniia I studied with succes for my A and B1 certificate. After my leave a had to join another Shell Tanker as a fifth engineer. So no promotion. I left the Shell fleet and went to another oilcompany as a fourth ebgineer.
That was a big mistake because Shell Tankers was a good company to join, and I never forgot the proverb:
"Join the Shell and see the the world from jetty to jetty"
