Olwen 1981

Back in '81 we were way up north above arctic circle looking at a new kiev class russian ship we were not entirely welcome, no manners those russians, we had a Maltese 2nd cook small and chubby, well at 3 in the morning he would come knocking at all the galley staffs cabin doors and telling us it's time to turn to, it was difficult to try and get him to understand that we were so far up north that it was pretty much daylight all day at this time of the year does anyone know of his name. he was a great little guy and a pleasure to work with but his name i cannot remember for the life of me. Any help would be welcome, thanks.

My memory may be playing tricks on me but might it have been Willie Ronayne?
