I was home on leave and the first I knew was the 6 o'clock news. It really was appallingly handled. No wonder so many of us took the money and ran.

Hi Iain,
Are you by any chance the Iain Jenkins that was Sparks on the Duchess, Aug '71. Jasper Cliffe was the Old Man and Charlie Pullen the mate. I joined in Marcus Hook as first trip D/C.
