I was R/O on the Marengo from Hull to various ports in the USA for several round trips in 1958. Captain David Stokes and his wife (back in UK) were so keen on The Archers" that he asked me not to transmit while the programme was on Radio 4 - then the Home Service, I think. While we were in USA, with the Long Wave signal lost, his wife would write to keep him up to date.
