TBT: Seaman’s Hall ca early 1980s

WMSI Inspiration

WMSI started crewing operations in the late 1960s, when it was still a department of Wallem’s ship agency business in the Philippines. It was registered as a separate entity in 1976, and from then on had been a consistent awardee of POEA for practicing ethical recruitment.
