I'll have to go to my font of information on that, Don Shearwood, prodigious memory, he is still around. A few Masters, Mates , CE's and 2E's might remember him. He was heavily involved with the Iranian Cadet programme from the start.

One of the Iranian Engineering Cadets is a CE on BC Ferries, I have met him.
