Never met the gentleman, maybe someone had too many beers and saw old Charlie Ferns, aka Furness Ferns the old fireman and started the tale. Never saw any bullet hole in any desks, there was plenty of rust holes in the funnel. The Oakmore was scrapped in spain not Constanza, a regular port of call on the Black Sea run.
