Joined the Baron Murray in Rothesay Dock Glasgow in June 1954, my first trip.
In true Hogarth style all the crew were paid off and the apprentices did everything.
The downhall on the flagpole of the Saltire on the foremast had come adrift and someone had to go up and retrieve it. There was only me another first tripper and the senior cadet with three and a half years in
The senior cadet was not going up to the truck of the foremast with two first trippers on the gantline.
I said I would go up as I was not afraid of heights.
It was much higher than I imagined and vibrating
I clung on so hard to the gantlin that my index finger went into the sheave at the truck and I have the scar to this day.
Good ole 1950's health and safety.

It's. a long shot, but wonder if you or other ship mates of this era recall an apprentice called Alex Loveday - ex Woolverstone Hall?

LOL! Hungry Hogarth was a company that I was warned to stay away from my very first voyage as an apprentice, in 1968. I would not have touched them with a bargepole! Anyone, who was not a first tripper must have known about them--they were, to be polite, extremely well known in the profession.

On completing the three month pre sea course at the Nav. School in John St. Glasgow in 1960 I went for an interview with H. Hogarth and got bawled out by the Marine Super for not having a sextant, hardly had a chance to purchase one! rather shocked and taken aback I got up and walked out. Maybe I just caught him on a bad day, or on the other hand maybe it was a lucky escape.

All,
In another life I knew a lady who had married into the family.
She was shocked when I enlightened her as to reputation of the "Parish rigged B------s".

Yours aye,
slick

Served my time on Baron Boats and later on as they became part of Scottish Ship Management. Four years hard graft but learned a great deal about life, although not a lot of the finer points of navigation!

I wrote 1968. I'd been ashore 5 years, by then! I meant 1948.
