Bloody hell, never thought I would hear your name again.......... I was the engineer that caused you to change from Deck to Engine... blimey mate, so much to discuss, please get back to me.
As for Capt. Whitehouse, he was Admiral of the fleet, he then went into the Head Office at !, Queens Way, Southampton.... Its now an Indian Restaurant. Please contact....... where are you now ????
