School desk on the plates next to the main engine, with a oily pencil log-book, a large white enamel water jug just from the freezers evap room, no air-con. I know I am not the only one but all my ships were like that.

The bar was on the boat deck, port side, with an extension of the open part of the boat deck running past outside. The Old Man used to have a sneaky stroll past every now and then and have a quick look in through the ports to see who was there and see who was still there later.

My first ship as Engineer Apprentice 1962...I thought it was a great ship...no bar aboard at that time unfortunately but still have happy memories and compared with some later ships, an immaculate engineroom. Ok no A.C. but dont remember it being missed too much as I think it was a few years until I sailed on a City boat that had.
