I can honestly say that my trip on the Raeburn, was the best that I ever made. Left Liverpool 12th of September, and paid off at Manchester on 12th November 1973. The East Coast of South America, was one of the best runs back then. I have attached a photo that I took in the crew bar. Front row on the left is Paul Arrowsmith, steward, back row second from left, was a good friend of mine, Jimmy Melia A.B. from Liverpool, sadly we lost touch after that trip. Hope you can recognise someone in the photo. Regards Tony Jones. R867015.

There was no beer on the ships I sailed on years ago,in port you may see a few bottles about but not when you put to sea,
just the tot of rum from the Chief. Many tried to make a brew but most the time it would rot the socks off you.

I thought this was going to be about coal fired stoves! I recognize Andy Capp ..... read the other day that he's stopped smoking!

Sounds like a good ship, Tony.
