Welcome to the site Lamptrimmer.
I got to know a real Lamp Trimmer in Labuan, he had to go round all the laid-up Shell Tankers, every night and light the Anchor Lights, putting them out in the morning. He did this for years, a cushy numbers but extremly boring.

Welcome Aboard!

When I sailed for a trip as 'LampTrimmer' ('cos the Old man reckoned I should have the rate, as I was doing the job, and it paid more than being signed on as apprentice), the guy I relieved advised me "That all I needed to be a succesful Lamp Trimmer was infinite patience, and Million's of 'Little Tins' ".............
