The mrmsw site is worth looking at.
There are some interesting stories written by ex radio officers on there.

Two are about British Monarch, Monarch Shipping line, in 50s when the 2nd mate was lost overboard in pacific for 12 hours. 2/Eng at time was Victoria Drummond.

Freddiethefrog has a SOS story on there too.

One of the SOS stories written by ex R/O is about a ship in Atlantic convoy.

Sri about that.

The site was working in March 2017 when I read fredfythefrog's aka John's SOS story.

The site changed from its previous one in 2014 with a shortened name after radio museum moved from Fort Perch.

I have emailed Stan M to see if it has been changed again now they have moved from Planet lightship to a tug moored in Liverpool.

Don't give up on that site. It is supposed to be active. I had email reply back from Stan M (ex Marconi man).

I checked myself and you are correct , I have only just renewed the fee. I have asked M*****a to check it out.
Many thanks,

NB M*****a is the lady who looks after site for him.

Thanks for that.

I have suggested to Stan that he gets permission from Mike R who wrote the Tectus SOS story to put his LST story on the mrmsw site. The ship wasnt in SOS situation, but the radio officer was, and in imminent danger of getting his head sliced off when trying to fix a remote P.G. island's only much treasured transistor radio.
