Mike just spent a couple of hours at home here in Jamaica looking at your website, mentioned in your profile, www.elderdempster.co.uk. It certainly does not seem like 30 odd years ago. I was CdtPurser/Writer/AP from 70-74, sailed with Pursers Laurie Edwards and Mike Cooper. Then moved on to Palm Line and finally UASC. A great website with some great links as well.
Thanks for sharing this with us all.
