Arrow 3/O mv Devis:

Racking my grey cells for the name of 3/O I sailed with (as R/O) on the Devis from March 1969 to April 1970.
He played Revells 'Bolero' none stop on his wind up record player, and brought away piston cylinders to polish (from either a bike or VW).
Captains were Mulligan and Capon.
Brilliant trips Brasil down hill to Argentina etc.

Devis was a Lamport Holt cargo ship. Believe Mulligan and Capon were Houlder Bros. Masters.
