Hi Julian,

As I said:

On board were a chief and second mate, a second and fourth (acting 3rd) engineer and an electrician. There were a couple of nav and eng cadets. Yes, the living quarters were Portacabins on the port side between the accom and main loading ducts. The greatest problem was abject boredom!"

They were permanently onboard. Yes, the vessel at night, as any "dead" ship was particularly spooky!

We were onboard for Charles'/Di's wedding. We built a pyramid of M/Ts on deck. We lost count at 96.......... July and bl00dy freezing!!!!

Last thing, every day, before going ashore was to pick up the rubbish for disposal shoreside!

Rgds.
Dave
