Ian Baldock - Glenbarry

Anyone remember Ian Baldock aka paddy he was on deck? He sailed on the Glen Barry late 60s and went to Communist china on it. He later did a few trips with T&J Harrisons as 3rd/2nd Mate.

When you say he was on deck do you mean he was a deck cadet. In my time Glen Line never carried European ratings.

Glen Line and Blue Funnel cadets were referred to always as midshipmen. If the ship was Glengarry then my guess that Mick Barry was a middy...
