MV Debrett

Hello, just wondered if anyone remembered sailing on the Debrett on her ill-fated trip to SA from Liverpool in early 60s ( 64 I think ) The engine room caught fire in Recife and we were laid up for a few weeks until a crew flew out to do repairs. Sadly, we lost a couple of crew, Chief Fridge and the Donkeyman on watch, the rest of the watch escaped through the tunnel, me included. Pete Axon Jun Eng.
