Did the maiden voyage on "Katsina Palm" joining her in the builders yard in December 1957. I was 3rd Mate
Alas don't remember the captains name and the signature in my discharge book I can't decipher.
Only did the one trip and then went to Germany to do the maiden voyage on "Akassa Palm"
Remember on both voyages there were cocktail parties in the West African ports and we had to dress in our #10 and escort guests to the boat deck where it was held.
The Kru boys had been very busy for days holystoning the wood decks!!!
