Remember visiting Behiant in Hull in 66 while I was on Bencleuch.Paddy Ryan was in the deck crew then,also remember yourself as Bosun.Think Barny Macleod was also there. Long time ago now to remember them all

Hiya Alex, its funny to see this photo again as I have the same one in my posession, it was a great time, the old saying springs to mind "chatty but happy" with some great runs ashore!! Thats me on the right end, Charlie Reid, I was "Peggy" JOS for three trips on her, in fact when you left everbody packed in as well. Thanks for the memory!! Regards Charlie

HI,Allan&Charlie,nice to hear from you been a long time,your right chas a good crew
and happy times.I think the reason i left her was home-sick for Hong Kong two years and only one visit,however i done another three years with ben-line,after a
bit nagging from the wife with one of a family and one on the way i agreed,but still
have the great memories of life at sea. REGARDS Alex
