Hugh,
I know that Lampy. It's noy Billy Kermode as I originally thought. I'm thinking it is Joe Cavanagh (Wicklow)

I seem to recall he had a Scouse accent but I could't swear to that. No mistake about Bosun Maine, he was Glasgow born & bred. Another Blue Funnel bosun I remember well was Tommy Boswell. Did you know him, Bill?

Hugh,
Well it was not Joe Cavanagh as he was broad Irish. I remember the name Boswell but I did not sail with him.
The Bosuns that stayed in my mind all these years later were Paddy Proctor (Arklow) Joe Cavanagh (Wicklow) and Jack Cleary (Wicklow). I sailed with Paddy on Memnon 55 (long drag ..11 months) Laxton was Master. And again in Antenor 58 McDavid was Master. He was a phenomenal wire splicer and the best.

Note the figures leaning on the promenade deck rail: they are the Dutch boy's mother and the Chief Engineer. I wonder what became of them all. The only one whose fate I learnt of was Stubbins, the one on the right. He died some years ago and prior to that had been master of the s.v. Cachalot (I think that is correct).
His brother had been on the 4" gun in the Chilean Reefer when they took on the Gneisenau in the same convoy that made the San Demetrio saga a legend.
