Kevin , he must be talking about cargo losses. There was a lot of ore
evaporation in those warm latitudes.
Would the cook be little John Costa who later became ch.stwd.??.

Do you remember the bosun that was there for a long time, Bob Campbell from Buckie?

Good fellow of the first order. Pissed as a rat for one week out of every month but it was worth it for he did the remaining three weeks!

WARWICK CANNONBALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was my second ship.... 23rd July, 1971 to 27th October, 1971.

Paid off in Singapore when she was sold. Awful ship! EG Taylor was mate. RL Richards was master, Frank Brown was 2/O.

Transferred from WARWICK FORT to SCOTPARK for an eight month trip. Altogether I was away from home for 18 months. My first four years in the company.... July 1970 to February 1974 I was home on leave TWICE... for a total of 3months.

Kevin,

Yes, Millar was cheng while I was there. Liked his ale! Renato was also there... AKA 'John Fiat'!

As I said earlier, Taylor was the Mate... but there was another mate for the first six week on board. Name slips me at the moment. From Buckie. His next voyage was master in NAESS PIONEER. Anyhow, he used to smoke some bloody awful pipe tobacco... in paper as a cigarette! He woudl come up to the bridge at 0400... drink a whole tin of condensed milk and then gaat Frank Brown to give him a shoulder massage. Never wore shorts on watch... just a 'Denholm kilt'.... bath towel! Every morning at daylight after taking sights hje would call the E/R and ask for water on deck. He would then go out on the side of the wheelhouse, open the hyrdant and take wash. Something to do with crabs I think. His 'uniform' for cargo watch was ven more inventive... heavy work boots... a dirty pair of old Y fronts and a strip of old towell wrapped around his head. With a think pair of dark framed glasses and a long scraggly beard he was a frightful sight! Good fellow though. A real grafter. One voyage we arrived at Kuwait to load...berthing about 0700. We had come on watch at 0400. I always did my 'watch' with the mate. We were down on deck soon after 0700 to deballast and then line up ready to start loading. That was on the Saturady morning. We completed cargo and came off the berth about 0800 on Monday. Neither of us had left the deck in two days! Tea and meals out on deck... no fancy 'control room'!!!! The first of four tankers/OBO's I sailed in. When the LOCH LOMOND was being built I was the first to volunteer!
