How does one navigate around Hull nowadays, reports in this forum would indicate that there has been a dramatic rationalisation of the traditional bunker stops.

Roddy. Most of the traditional bunker stops will be posh wine bars now or demolished completely.like the dock area of Leith.Don,t know about Grangemouth tho,haven,t been there since I was on Bencleuch.with Capt.Plenderleith and Davie Durban,Does that ring a bell in your head?

God yes, bells are ringing, that must be 40+ years ago! My recollection of events and I presume yours are probably best kept in the furtherest recesses of the memory banks, under a discreet veil. In mitigation I will claim to having been led astray by those older wiser (?????) and more senior, I do remember putting a lot of effort into diverting Captain P's attention whilst others sorted out a situation that whilst really quite funny would probably have caused the normally mild mannered Captain to have an apopleptic fit, had he found out.

It really is amazing what memories are recalled in ships nostalgia.

'New Inn' was a six day house - it was closed on Sundays. I was led to believe the reason being that the building was on land owned by the railways.

I remember New Inn not far from the dock gate - in 1946/47 -1951 -1953/54..
Also another pub we visited in Hull in those times was known as Freddy Nunn's.
I don't know the proper name but Freddy was gay.
Anyone know of that pub?
