the bill was caused by the guy I relieved the ch. elect who was from glasgow
and was leaving to join the the china nav.comp. and went out in a blaze of glory buying bottles of champange for for the air line stewardesses at about 100 a pop.the bill for the 5/6 guys paying off was about according to rumour 1400 not to shabby for a bar bill in about 1975/6.apart from that we had a great time for the next 4/5 months
