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.

Good day all,

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

My name is Peter Marshall and I was an assistant purser in the RFA from 1968 to 1972. My first boss in RFA Tidespring was Michael Flaherty. I then enlisted in the Royal Highland Fusiliers as a private soldier (don't ask) and was in a LSL from Glasgow to Belfast, February 1974 when who should I spot watching this sea of Jocks, was Michael. I called out to him and we repaired to his cabin and consumed some of Scotland's main export. That was the last I saw of him. The irony of me going over to his native land was not lost on either of us. What I need to add and tell Michael is that I have discovered that I am a quarter Irish too. He would smile at that. If anyone knows of Michael's whereabouts, I would be very grateful.
