Thanks for this one khod.
My first ship joined her in Sydney Feburary 1965 a week before my 21st birthday as the jnr engineer. It sure was hard work with those twin Sulzers but a great mob on board and as they now say, they worked hard and they played hard.
I couldn't have had a better introduction to the British Merchant Navy.
