I guess you are retired now. Did you stay at sea? where are you living ?
I had a spell ashore but came back to sea and am retired living in Bangor N.Ireland. Remember Capt.Kent DSC. Capt.Brian Ditchburn,Chris Robbens I think was 2/0 Brett Bachelor. Those pints of tea and toast on the after mooring bitts at 0630 watching the tropical sunrise were the best ever. Nostalgia at its best!
Brian Ditchburn was C/O on the maiden voyage of the Tudor Prince.
