I never saw those lattice work derricks on a Bluey before.

It must have been a pain to paint them.
As for lead ingots, we had a couple of thousand tons of them in the Neleus. Discharged them at Associated Octel on the Manchester Ship Canal at Ellesmere Port.

We did not load lead ingots at any time during the voyage.

No, Dave, we were the only one in port. We only discharged in Townsville and then in Cairns, and went on to the islands of Indonesia to load copra. And what an experience that was!
