  1. This website has been a great help to me in the past so I'm hoping someone can help me again.
    I'm looking for an old Oppo of mine....J P Iball.I know he lives in Helston. One of the guys here pointed me to which I have just tried but I'm not a member. We served on the Ark together in the 70's but only just found out where he was living a couple of days ago.

    I've tried looking up all the family, wondering if anyone is a member of that could provide me with the address and phone number please.

    Thanks kindly for any help

    I like your new Avatar :oops:

    Is it really you :?: (Sadly mine isn't :cry: )

  5. :( Sweetpea you have helped me in the past may I ask for your assistance again. I have tried and tried to trace my schoolmate,shipmate, and messmate, one Ships cook Alan [sometimes Spud sometimes Buck] Taylor. Our home town is Ross on Wye Hdfs. We served together on H.M.S. Adament 1956 and we met up in Singapore 1959 when Alan was serving on a survay ship and I cannot remember the cap tally, she was painted white overall though. I believe Alan was drafted to Dryad and may have served at Ganges also. I believe that he is living in the Portsmouth area and if he is still with us will be in his 70s, :( I had nothing but complications with 192 :cry: Greatful for help from all who can. By the way he doesn't owe me a tenner. :wink:

    BreathingOutOnTheWayUp: Yes, my avatar is a photo of moi. Glad to learn that your avatar is not of you - your little chap is rather on the skinny side. :lol:

  7. Seaking,

    I've PM'd you the contact details of your friend.

    Jesse, I'm still trying to trace your friend. Sadly I've received no reply to the enquiry that I made yesterday.
