I remember the copra run well

Thanks Alan, great memories, having done a Bay of Bengal East Africa service on the Pinebank and the East Africa Asia service on Olivebank, I joined the Weirbank in Rabaul in 1976 and enjoyed that very wonderful meander through the Pacific Islands and then back to Liverpool. Those pesky copra bugs sure had a good bite though, trick was to put some copra bits about the cabin to attract them.
