Hello Eggo
Sailed with a captain’s tiger on the Dunnottar Castle in 1956 who was quite an accomplished marine artist, I was the officer’s steward and we shared a cabin which opened out on to the boat deck just below the bridge. Any spare moments he had he could be found on the boat deck with easel and canvas. The captain used to two host two art shows each trip, one for the bloods outward and one homeward of which the tiger used to do very well out of. He gave me one of a BP tanker and at the time I did not appreciate it as well as I should have, I did get it home, but have no idea what became of it, and sadly I don’t remember the lads name.
