I was 3rd Mate on Andria for one voyage ex London to Canada /USA in Dec/Jan 1963. The senior apprentice was Paul watts, cousin of Charie Watts of Rolling Stones fame I believe and his uncle was Cunard Commodore at that time.What a wonderful elegant vessel she was and so fast averaging 17-18 knots regularly.Next voyage I was brought down to earth with maximum 8 knot , wartime 'Sands' boat 'Brescia on the Meddy run. !! happy days.
