There were some blank faces in the Edgware Road Office when I went to arrange the Charter party, as only a couple of years before I was a 2/O with Cunard, and people kept asking what ship I was now on..

I remember it well, for the charter we fitted an A Frame which was called the OSAGANG, it was originally fitted to the Strait Shore when she was new as OSA, at the time, was looking for an AHTS with an A Frame, happy days
