SS 'Myrmidon' was a Victory ship if you are talking 60/61 when I left.
Jimmy Morris was permanently on the coast and took the Deck Boys fresh from the care of Dennis O'Brian (OB) post 58/59 when he took over from Mick Brabender. He must have been 50 around this time.

Between OB Jimmy Morris and the whole setup that was in place (YMCA) and ODYSSEY WORKS made life a lot easier for a lad who was trying to find his feet
