Good Point Frank probably at sea rather than in port - maybe a few beers before dinner at sea ( rather than a party in port) - In SSA at that time it was full uniform in the dining saloon at sea at all times.

I sold my superb 1956 Dommie 88 to get my MN uniform, because of the expected long tramp voyages, I can count on one hand the times I wore it. Something I regret to this day:mad:.

Hi Waiwera Yes we were. I did one trip as 2nd Fridge and the other as 4th. I was life boat engineer when we went across to the Ruthenic mid Pacific to the doctor for one of our crew.
The chap on the LHS side of the photo was a electrician. Next to him was the R/O then Jack who was about 8th E/O. Not sure of the cadets name. The chap laughing bottom LHS I think was Johny Pane 3rd E/O. Another chap from north of the border. Had many a good time with these lads. Brings back memories
