Not the most comfortable ship I have ever been on but very representative of her era, the Radio Office and accommodation was situated at the end of the boat deck, when she went astern the noise was unbelievable, sounded as though a hundred bags of spanners had just been emptied down the ventilation hatches...dunno why it should have been that noisy but it was!!.
