I'm obliged to have your recall of the waste water arrangements. I expect such would be unlawful these days.
Sorry Harry,It was probably oct 57 before we got to Sandheads.Immediately after 2nd mates on16 sept I was flown out to Dakar to join the Isipingo,I arrived late pm and we sailed at midnight lightship for Calcutta,
