I was on the Pride for the gaurantee dry dock. I joined her as Junior R/O in November 1974 and left in April 1975. Bob Lane was the Senior R/O, he had his wife, Wendy, with him.

Steve's report is pretty much as I remember it.

I think it was later than 1973 as I didn't join my first ship with BP until November 1974, this incident happened whilst I was at sea.
