Excellent post Harry,I went to sea in 1960 on a BP Tanker as pantry boy,and can still remember feeling sorry for the Apprentices.Even the Companies I thought of as good,like Royal Mail or Houlder Bros.treated their Apps/cadets abysmally!
But then,that is the way those who treated Apps/cadets in that manner, had experienced the same,and accepted that as the norm.
I'll never forget old ""wots-his-name"!!!
