Interesting what you have come up with John. All I know is I was taken into Vung Tau and along the river to Saigon. Whether or not it was an American ship is debatable. I wasn't paying that much attention at the time.. But yes I would certainly be interested in speaking to this man you mentioned. I have nothing to hide, and welcome the chance to speak to someone who may be able to clear up one or two other questions I have about that time i.e. I and the Malay boys I worked with, received no compensation from the company, and lost my job to boot.. Where did you get this information from? This man may know of me, as I also did some time working on a Hospital ship (being an ex Medical Corp man) in Danang called 'The Heligoland', around '69 '70. He maybe able to fill in a few gaps for me. If not, well too bad. Its too long ago to make any difference now.
