The poor cadets were always given strange jobs. Probably due to the fact they thought we were sober enough. HSE would have had a field day back then. Not sure what I was doing up there. SS Tantulus - Blue Funnel
Going on that floppy bit of string, could well be Pete - trouble is it appears to have a noose on the end! Actually the thing down the bottom end looks like an insulator and a safety loop so I'd say he may be hauling up a new aerial. Are you sure it's a cadet up there, Selwyn?
I think you are right John, selwyn is either rigging a new or de-rigging an old aerial for poor old "Sparkie". Purely as a matter of interest are we to bother about HSE when no1 hatch broaches in heavy weather??? All in a day's work selwyn, all in a day's work...............pete
