Anyone remember Ian Baldock aka paddy he was on deck? He sailed on the Glen Barry late 60s and went to Communist china on it. He later did a few trips with T&J Harrisons as 3rd/2nd Mate.

When you say he was on deck do you mean he was a deck cadet. In my time Glen Line never carried European ratings.

quite correct. in the 50,s Glengarry had 24 British and 130 chinese crew. the chinese crew came from 3 different regions. deck were shanghai. catering cantonese and the engine room from north china. it was interesting when an argument occured, this was done in pidgeon english.

BillGlen Line and Blue Funnel cadets were referred to always as midshipmen. If the ship was Glengarry then my guess that Mick Barry was a middy...
