Appertaining to RFA Dewdale

I was an engineer with Hunting & Sons and was promoted to 3rd Engineer in 1974 on Edenfield when we took her back from the RFA in Birkenhead. Nothing worked--she had run on diesel for years, the Turbo Alternator didn't work--in fact the Exhaust Gas boiler supplying steam to the T/A hadn't been used for years--The ship/ Engine Room etc etc was pristine--in fact the stores were full of little pots of "Touch-up" paint BUT--not one item of MAIN equipment had been looked at since God knows when--The Weirs Evap leaked like a sieve--we could only raise about 10" of vacuum--The Nirex was U/S--our 1st trip, we had to TAKE WATER at Lisbon to get us to U.S.A.--The heavy oil fuel heaters were leaking and choked--It took us 7 months to get EVERYTHING WORKING then the company in its wisdom sold it to Niarchos--Engineers --Hmmm !!!!

I would like to get in touch with anyone who served on RFA Fort Austin when it was in the Indian Ocean (Mobassa, Mauritius) in early 1982 prior to passage to Gibraltar and Ex Spring Train. Many thanks indeed.

Hi, my name is Jeremy Andrew.I served as a purser in the RFA from 1975 to 1980. Left there to join the RAF, should have stayed in the RFA. I sailed in Olmeda, Tidesurge, Tidespring, Tidepool, Tarbatness and Sir Bedivere. Anybody out there remember me. If so please drop me an email. Specially looking for Jim Smith, deck officer and Barry Thompson, electrical officer.

Bit of a random questio0n, but does anyone know who has the lubricants contract for the RFA now? It was Total back in my day (Visga hydraulic oils and Epona Z gear oils for example).
Cheers,
Ciaran
