In 53 my deep sea started on the Radnorshire (1948),I got a rude awakening on the next trip aboard the Dardanus (1920) on which they only asked you to do one voyage. Then offered long trip for sea time between Singapore & Australia on Idomeneus (1926) ,travelling out to join her ,guess what the Dardanus. Returning home & obtaining my 2eng ticket, I was sent as 3rd to the Phemius(1925) on the promise of something newer next trip. True to their word my next vessels were Demodocus(1955 voyage 2),Antenor(1957) & Melampus(1960).
