As I said before, I never sailed on the Lucknow but having been a JRE apprentice and 3/o I have thoroughly this thread and it has clearly brought back the atmosphere of those great years.
Although I missed the Lucknow I had the pleasure of "Bernard Theodore" on the City Of Glasgow which he commanded on its maiden voyage to India and then on the Far East run. Be assured he retained all the mannerisms referred to in this thread.
I see to mentioned Denis Dick. Was his father Captain of one of the Big Four (not sure which one). If so I did my Second Mates with him at Belfast 1966. I cant remember the christian name but think it my be him
