I was R/O on the Marengo for several North Atlantic trips, first half of 1958. Captain was David Stokes. He kept signing me on again as soon as we reached home port of Hull, even though it meant paying Marconi for me for 10 days until the ship was ready to sail again. He always asked me not to transmit while the Archers was on :-)
