Good memories of the group who spent 4 months in 1956 training and living together in those formative years. Went to sea with Baker on the Orcades for two world cruises visited NZ, major impression! Big ships were not my scene, went coasting for two years very exciting, but very poor $$$. Moved ashore and after office work in London, ended up in the Paper Industry in Maidstone, Kent. Moved to Newcastle. UK 1970. Part of a start up crew on the then fastest Paper Machine in Europe. Emigrated to NZ in 1974.

Retired after 27yrs as a Paper Machine Manager.

Names from memory bank: Dobie, Bell, Williamson, Quinn(oz) Lawrence, others from Liverpool, Manchester,
London. Refresh my memory.
