Hi Alan,
Dolly used to go to an Egyptian men's club in Liverpool about 10 pm every night. I dread to think.
BF Walker came up to the bridge about 6am on passage to Glasgow. I told him I had altered course to avoid hitting Pladda lighthouse on the S coast of Arran. He said I shouldn't have done that, so what was I on watch for. When I think of it, I was 2nd mate on the Exeter for 2 years, aged 23-24, and Capt Ronnie Steel never came on the bridge on the midnight to 4. Courses as per chart. He also always left me orders to stop the ship and cruise up and down outside PE and East London during the night waiting for the early morning berthing. It was good to be trusted, not by BF Walker I guess. I think he retired soon after the St Albans. I went to the City of Port Elizabeth after that, and then left Ellermans when they decided to sell the big4.
Happy days indeed.
Andy.
