Great that you were awake and watchful to respond so quickly ... I joined Canadian Pacific right after Second Mates' ticket and served on Empress of Britain, Empress of France, Empress of Scotland and Beaverburn before moving over to Bibby Line. As expected, I forfeited watch keeping time by only earning two thirds time as the Junior on a two officer watchkeeping system except for the Beaverburn. It set me back some but I valued and benefitted from the experience ... the Mates were not allowed to fraterize with the passengers but did have our own table in a corner of the 1st Class Saloon. Regards, Keith.
