I was in Rollo 1966 the year of the strike. When you shipped out of Hull in those days it was impossible to get a job on any of the 10 day boats, but as soon as they changed the articles to FG there were plenty of jobs, and thats what they did. The ship would have become strike bound, so they sent her down the Medy for 6 weeks.
As soon as she came back to Hull we were sacked and the old crew joined her again on the 10 day run to Gothenburg.
I was also on Rialto 67/68 we did a 4 month trip down to Rio, Santos, wast coast of SA.
Bassano in 64/65 did the west coast of Africa. Happy days.
Stay lucky, Allan.
