Hello everyone,I've just been looking through 
the photo albums.Quite chuffed to see one of 
myself and Bill Mahoney at a barbeque.The 
crossing the line photo's bring back memories.I 
was a policeman that day.Anne,Nick's wife was 
one of the people to be "done".Nick came to me 
and said "I don't want to be a "grass" but my 
wife is hiding in the oilskin locker on deck 
four." I hope she forgives you Nick.I hope to 
go to the reunion this year.Who do I contact? Al

collectors who want to exchange? I have 
pictures of tugs(my favorites), cargo vessels, 
reefers, container and roro ships. The major 
part of my pictures are of the 10/15 cm. size 
and in color.

Discovered this website thanks to Flan Howard. 
joined S.S.M 1974 until end of 1985. Sailed on 
Baron Belhaven, Cape Race, Baron Pentland, Cape 
Ortegal and others. Have great memories of those 
trips still keep in touch with a few, Richard 
(Tricky) Wiggins, John Dobson, Willie Sutherland 
and Heather Moffat who was married to Euan 
Moffat who sadly passed away in December 2001. 
Actually going to Glasgow tomorrow to visit 
Heather. Now sail with Vela International on oil 
tankers as E.T.O and mostly run from Persian 
Gulf to Gulf of Mexico - dry ships. Has anyone 
heard of Billy Loadwick who was Catering 
Officer - am sure there is someone out there who 
remembers him as the Ginger Gypsy. Also Duncan 
Anderson where are you now Duncan. Hope to hear 
from somebody who i sailed with many moons ago.

Found you all at last! Started 1968 (Cape 
Nelson) finished 1980. 12 great years. Claim to 
fame, hit a 'growler' on Cape Race off 
Newfoundland - 2ft gash in fore peak - did,nt 
even feel the bump! Since then did 2 years 
yacht chartering in the Med and then sail 
training off the south coast, (right, OK, so 
I'm a yachtie). Well done for setting up the 
site and guest book, it brings back many great 
memories. Still in touch with Richard (Tricky) 

All the best

Dear SSM

Brilliant site already had most helpful person  
reply. Jim. Thankyou.  Cape Howe.Then became  
H.M.S Q Ship Prunella. Jim  has steered me in 
the right direction. It has insired me to find 
out more about my Grandfather's Life in the 
Merchant Navy.etc. Captain Duncan Cameron 
Who  on 21 June 1940 was torpedeod by U - 28. 
Duncan managed to save himself and 12 of the 
Crew.  He got a Mention in Despatchs. Oct 4th 
1940. How ever Gunter Kuhnke a German  
Commander who had sunk three  ships on his 
patrol got a Knights Cross.? No justice for 
Merchant un armed Sea men.Duncan and the 12 men 
were eventually  spotted by a flying Sunderland 
and then rescued on June 27th 1940. As Samuel  
Duncan's father would of said "The Bakers 
Dozen" As Only 13"  Men Survived.
