Stirring some memories, I think 1961/2 we had the Oregis (?) on what was Gjers Ayresome Wharf,just below Newport Bridge,having lightened at Tyne Tees Wharf by the Transporter Bridge. The Master, advised that he 'had a problem onboard' this was a steward that had gone over the top on alcohol and had stolen the Chiefs aftershave to drink.....which sent him around the bend totally,so locked in cabin until the Union & Federation were there,thereafter an ambulance to Middlesbrough General!
