    Good afternoon Kees,

    What a a very nice Xmas present I received today!!
    While reading the today's Maritime Press Clippings 2014-355 I saw your website and off course I opened and enjoyed all the Shell Tankers news. I joined Shell Tankers B.V. as Deck Apprentice in 1961 (Kryptos). Being transferred to the flagship Ondina in 1962 and on duty the 8th May 1962 and having a large collision in the Strait of Gibraltar. When the Ondina arrived slow steaming in Rotterdam for drydocking I signed off and had to appear several times for the internal Shell enquiry team! Finally I completed my sailing time as Deck Apprentice on board the Kabylia in 1962.
    I retired early 1993 as a Master and since 1993 I am a free lance nautical adviser and simulator teacher within Marine Safety Rotterdam B.V. , STC BV simulator center in Rotterdam and UT STC in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) and still going on in the simulation world! Certainly a lot of Shell fleet personnel might remember me working ashore for Shell as Ass. Marine Superintendent at Amlwch Port (Anglesey, Wales), Marine superintendent at Durban, Oil loss abatement team member In Curacao and Venezuela, Oil loss controller
    in Rotterdam deep sea terminals.
    I will sent U some pictures, anecdotes etc as soon as I have time available!! Wishing all of U a Merry Christmas and a Healthy Prosperous and Happy 2015.
    Also hope a lot of ex Shell Tankers personnel will be a member and making your website more known and improve all the information on your website too!!!
    Best regards Ton van Haaften
