Good Day to you all,
Like most of you I expect, I was once in the employment of Shell as a Deck Cadet, from 1974 -1978, which was my formative years, where as you could say I was growing up and less than an angel! LOL... and my apologies to any one who sailed with me and had the unfortunate experience to see me at my less than best!
I left Shell in 1978 anyone remember 'Lesley Streeter' anyway my apologies to her for what have been perceived as something personal, whilst it was nothing more than an investigation in to Shell policy, being told I was number 79th in line for promotion! LOL.
To fill you in since I left, I attained the position of Master in 1989 which I held up until 2005 after which I have been that dreaded Vetting Inspector, for various companied including would you believe 'Shell'.
Thats me, anyone who may have sailed with me please free to contact me, please do not use too many expletives! LOL.
Take care, Shell taught me all I know! reflect on that!
