Hi Bill, I was on the Benloyal a few times firstly from 12/63 to 10/64 as JOS, some of the time doing "peggying". I remember you went to live in Hong Kong.
A happy ship with a good deck crowd, not least the the amazing bosun, Jamie Jamieson. Sailed later with a few of the Loyal deck crowd including a few trips with Jamie Watt when he was bosun.

Hi Davy, Have seen your name in earlier threads and although it rang a (distant) bell, I could not remember where I had made your acquaintance. Now the mystery is solved. Good to hear from you and all the best for the New Year.Peter.
