Benvrackie Suez Canal 1975

Homeward bound, the first convoy through the canal heading West, Rod Stewart at No 1 with "we are sailing" what more could you want. Certainly not the mine which the ship in front of us hit..!! Still a war zone at the time with burned out tanks etc by the side of the canal.The first time I had seen the "ships headlight" in use, cost me a case of beer. The 1st. elec asked me to give him a hand test the headlights before we entered the Canal. The answer was a wee bit on the rough side but anyway I put a case of beer where my mouth was, went with him and threw a bucket of water over the lens to test it. Cost me a case of Tiger..!!!
