jordiboy, we must have been one the same trip! I joined her on the 2nd april 1962, in victoria dock, paid off 9 may , in victoria dock, [j.o.s.] I remember on the way back to the u.k. we hit a freak wave, that tossed us out of are bunks. and stopped the ship dead in the water, she also had a gun platform on the poop deck,[ long removed] and gunners accommodation below the crews, we had to get the food in billy cans. from midships, and take it aft, not very nice in a force 9 gale!
