It was the only ship where you had to stow the chart rubbers to stop them falling of the chart table
I recall once on Wandsworth that we were called upon to take bunkers to (I think) the Queen Mary in Cherbourg because the weather in the Channel was too severe for her to risk Soton! That's when we really found out how a Dingbat could roll. The period of roll didn't come into it -- it got close the revs per minute!
