Aug-Dec 1959, I was still a 2R/O on Maihar.

Did the BoT Radar Cert in 1960 and 1R/O from then on.

Bagpipe playing is not an attribute I could ever claim!

I took more interest in the cargo carried on the homeward leg. Outward the few things I can recall were parts for steel work being provided by Britian and Germany. Explosives from ICI loaded in Milford Haven and discharged at Diamond Harbour.
