After I left school in 1967, I worked as a barman for the summer. One of my customers was Commander Gordon Steel, V.C., who had been in command of "Worcester". When I told him that I was planning to become a Deck Apprentice with Shell Tankers (U.K.) Ltd., he gave me a book on Ship Construction, which I still have in my possession.
