Hi All - found this site whilst looking for info on a seaman who was awarded the civilian M.B.E. immediately after WWII & who served as radio officer on board the M.V. CAPSA, presumably through WWII. My studies have a long way to go but I assume the ship was the 2nd of that name due to being built 1931 & sold 1948. The radio officer was Mr John Jolly Thompson M.B.E. who I assume has died since I am in possession of his M.B.E. & documentation for it. He also received 2 bravery awards & oak leaves, which I have & have yet to research. God bless all the brave men of the Merchant Navy, past & present, of which an uncle of mine was also one during WWII, though I don't know the name of his ship.

Hi- I've just found acigar box presented to my grandfather, Claude Rackham, to mark the 'Technical Trial of M/V Trollskjell' on 26/04/1964, I believe he was an expert on marine diesel engines. Does anyone have any more information of the ship or my grandad - it would mean a lot to my father (his son). Best wishes Richard Rackham

It is with sadness that I have to tell you that my wife Shirley crossed the Bar on the 22nd January. Many of you will have remembered us during the 30yrs I was with Shell. We had many adventures which I have recorded on this site. We met when Shirley was 16 and I was 19, we have 2 children, 5 grand children and 2 great grandchildren. We were married for 51 yrs.

I am researching the Holtmann family. Henri Theodoor Holtmann (11-11-1917) was a machinist on the tanker Ceronia on its maiden voyage (May-Nov 1939). According to his children on his next trip he was torpedoed but the ship managed to reach Rotterdam. The Shell archives however say he was not on the crew list of the trip when Ceronia was torpedoed (5-2-1940). It could also have been the tanker Phobos which struck a mine on 18-03-1940, but Shell says they have no crew list anymore... Is there still somebody to find who knows more?
