I was in her as AB in 1964 same run as you she was chatty but happy we broke down just before we entered the locks outward bound so we got an extra night alongside ,the wheel house window came in homeward bound chippy fixed a peice of board in place , we had 2 lifeboats smashed up arrived in Liverpool and paid off they wanted us to take her round to London but as I say in the end they decided to pay us off, before we left the ship 2 liferafts where fitted for all that it was not a bad ship best regards to all hands .
