Had previously signed in old guestbook, but have 
new e mail address. Anyone able to send me any 
photos of Grenville maiden voyage, Leeuwin '73 
or Ardrossan '74/75. Many thanks to Willie 
Mcfarlane and John Trotter in Brisbane for 
previous correspondence, but unfortunately have 
lost your e mail addresses. Anyone remember the 
cook on the Leeuwin in '73 or Ardrossan '74/75, 
an Irish guy from Rialto in Dublin called Tom. 
If anyone has his e mail address or even if you 
are reading this yourself Tom, could you get in

Hi guys I need help!! I'm trying to list all the 
ports I went to each trip but having probs 
remembering either thru old age or I was too 
drunk at the time ( no comments Mr Benzie :-) ). 
Can someone tell me how I would go about finding 
out where each ship went??? 
Also what date is the reunion and where???
Hope your all keeping well and I'll see you all 
later this year hopefully.

Sailed with SSM from 1974 until "The Last Ship" 
Baron Kinnaird in 1986. 
I am currently landscape gardening and open to 
offers of alternative employment.
I am taking advantage of JD's computer to wish 
all the best to Frank Taylor, Peter Newton, 
(does anyone have Peter's address) Rubber Man, 
Nick Ince, Duggie Campbell and all former 
Still partial to the odd tipple but not like the 
old days. The wages earned from landscape 
gardening don't allow it.

My Dad, Brian Denmark, spent many years as 
chief engineer working for SSM. In 1972 when I 
was 6, I was lucky enough to spend 7 months at 
sea with him, most of it in the engine room. It 
was a fantastic experience, one that I will 
never forget. Sadly my dad died in 1994. It 
would be great to hear from anyone who sailed 
with him.
