The Benvannoch in Telok Ayer 1972, just flashed up by the look of her. Great ship, great crew, great memories.

Aye, right enough there. If the bridge could not alter course when blowing tubes there used to be a lot more used the next day....!!!!

Hughie,We came up the channel one night, blew tubes as normal, tied up in London the next day and got a letter of complaint from the Royal Yacht. So the story goes anyway.

Well noticed, have given her the wrong name, this is actually the Benvannoch, main deck accomodation. Thank you.
