Another shin-dig was when the Stac.Arty and Cleuch were all the Ocean Terminal together.The party started on the Cleuch at morning"smoko".The Bosun of the Arty( Ronnie Buchan) finished up walking along the terminal in broad daylight in his Y fronts.(advertisment for Hings).On telling this story on my last oil related boat. The skipper piped up that he was 3rd,mate then on the Arty and the Bosun also replied he had been AB then on the Arty.I was on the Cleuch.

Eltel, read you piece re crew on the Benledi, and wondered if the 1/O mentioned would be Ian Hamilton who sailed as Cadet on the older Bencruachan with me way back in 1949 ,the Captain then was "Typhoon" Jones, C/O Oswald Atkinson, other Cadets were Craig Alexander, Ian came from somewhere over the Forth Bridge in the Kingdom of Fife

Ern, Sounds about right. If you look at the photos on my post at bottom of previous page, 3rd photo from bottom, top left photo on page, "Hammy" is on far right facing camera. He used to drive me daft using the chartroom dividers to scrape out his pipe! Terry.

I'm actually no relation at all.When I joined the Cruachan as a cadet in 1977,it was the first question asked by many though.
