I refitted the radio room on the Pipiriki in Palmer's drydock at Hebburn on the Tyne, early in 1967, soon after I came ashore to work for Marconi's in South Shields. I remember being astonished that the bulkheads in the radio room were tongue and groove timber. Not my choice for fire resistance. Tiimes change.
