Hi, I never sailed on Gulf Briton but my uncle Fred Hurford was the cook or steward about that time. She was at Eastham I seem to remember and myself,brother, mother and aunt where invited on board.
I was only about 6/7 at the time.
I was also invited on board, at Eastham again when I was about 24,1981/82 maybe, for a drink. I don't know whether it was the same vessel or a newer build of the same name.
A " bit " of trouble happened on this occasion when a lot of crew members, myself and others decided to take a few trophies from the local pub for the ships bar. This stupid act caused the police to be called by the pub manager and all the "trophies" to be returned ASAP.
Don't know if any further action happened as myself and ladyfriend went home.
Anyone out there remember this incident ? LOL
