Hi, I was the 2nd Mate on the voyage that Capt Cringle died. However, I am afraid that I can't remember any other officer's name. Now I sometimes have a problem remembering my own!!!!

I do remember that we had to put into a North African port to get a Dr to confirm his death. I seem to recall that he was buried at sea a short while later.

Bendoran

I was up in Edinburgh last friday and i was talking to Archie Watters who was one of the last Marine Supts. Archie recalls that Alec Johmstone was the Chief Off on the voyage when Capt Cringle died outward bound .
Alec went on to become a marine supt and was also in charge of intake of new deck cadets. He did all the normall duties of the supts besides.
Alec lves in Dunfirmline

I have also obtained some other matter related to the Bendoran called the Ode to a Scouse. this was an odd written by the Late Capt J.C.Harvey in Singapore in Dec 1958 ,at this point Iam not sure what rank JC was and Iam finding out before i publish the ode . It is very good and will be worth reading by all on both sides of the border.
It will bring back memories to all on the far east run.

Await the moment.

Rgds Ian.

Hello Ian
I was interested in you remarks re bendoran .I often wonder what happened to Alec Johnstone as I was 1st Officer at the time .Alec was a bit upset that the company sent out Sandy Sinclair as he hoped command for the voyage . so he made supt in the end
for me it was my last voyage with Benline.

Hello everyone

I am here on a family genealogy search - Captain John "Jack" Cringle was my great-uncle by marriage and I suspect I may be one of the last of his living relatives. If anyone has any stories about him I'd be very grateful to hear them.
