There must be loads of you who sailed with Captain Rex Lymn, a great man who thought a great deal about the crew. Everywhere we went he was always sending the Cadets to other ships to exchange movies and get newspapers. Prior to arriving in Bangkok he had the party lights rigged on the boat deck and the outboard gangway lowered!! I sailed with him on the Bencairn as 2nd. Mate and Jimmy Hamilton was Chief Officer in 1974.
