Between April '65 and February '66 I did 3 trips on Alaunia and 1 on Andania as relief R/O (relieving Brian Farren and Frank Dunn who were the regular R/Os) with a 5 month trip on Mahseer in between. Masters were "Dai" Davies and "Captain" Bradley. I don't remember too many of the other officers' names - Jim Colquhoun (Ch.Off), Barry Gold (2/O).
Too right about water being in short supply. Bl$$dy cold in the winter, especially having to go up to the radar scanner pedestal on the front of the funnel to fix a fault. Grub wasn't as good as Brocklebank. Ventilation was a real problem at times in a following wind as funnel gasses got sucked into the air intakes on the rear edge of the funnel. Funny watching the stewards going ashore in New York in drag.
