Looking for any information on Frank Spicer who sailed with me on the Patani in the early 1960's. Often  wonder what happened to him' if he stayed at sea etc.

He lived at 24 Wrigsham St Coventry Warks

Many thanks Mike Higgins

Can anyone out there tellme  the date the strong room on the MV Apapa was robbed of the money.

From Peter Dunn

I sailed on the “Accra” on many voyages from 1963 to 1967 when she was transferred to Spain for dismantling.


I was Assistant Purser and have great memories of many of my fellow officers and passengers on these voyages to

West Africa.  Would be good to hear from anyone who sailed in the ship at this time.
