A fellow called Sullivan was head waiter in first class in 1963/64/65 and possibly 66. I remember Dusty coming for the first time.

I remember Dusty well, also having to put down and take up the dance floor in the first class dinning room. Dusty looked after us chippies.

My Mum had a B&B in New Brighton. We had two or three stewards stay with us for a short while as the Windsor Castle was being prepared for her maiden voyage.
Itís going back a bit, but I think one of the lads was named Ambrose.
I was 12 and going to sea was something I wanted to do, though at that time as what, had not been decided.
Ambrose sent me from Capetown a leather book marker with the cape peninsular embossed on it. This just had me dreaming of far off places and beautiful ships.

My first ship was a T&J Harrison out of Bidston Dock, Birkenhead.
Still I did get to far away places, but not on such a splendid ship as the W. Castle.
