rainbow: The young Glaswegian in question sailed as Fifth Engineer in the Pozarica. Sadly, I can no longer recall his name. The short sea trade out of London or Liverpool was pleasant enough, especilly if you lived near one of those ports. I didn't, so guess who did the "nights on board."
merrymac: From 1963 to 1967 I sailed in the Pozarica, Palomares and the Pelayo with a couple of GSNC ships between times. I was in the first MacAndrews vessel to call at Sheerness once it became a proper commercial port. The Pelayo, I think.
