Just come across and old Discharge book of Robert George Hook R36483. His rating on the Strathmore & Corfu was B.C.S. Does this stand for Bedroom Cabin Steward?

Plenty of different ranks Alan on the pax boats in catering:-

Bedroom Stwd-Public room Stwd-First class waiter - Tourist class waiter - and many more I would imagine.
