David, I am new to this site, and may have replied twice, but I would love photocopies of what you have. If you like, I can provide an email address where you can send them, unless you are able to access that from the site. Please advise. Many thanks!

Hi Ian,

I joined the Bardic in Glasgow, 22/8/1961.
Got on well with Les Allison, more so on the second voyage when I was the only Eng Cadet on board, always found him willing to answer the stupid questions of a first tripper. A gentlemen.
Luckily the Maltese Prince had gone by the time I finished my apprenticeship, did hear tales of doom and gloom from others later when filling in time standing by other Prince Line ships in West India Dock. Sailed on Black Prince for 6 months as J/E, cushy number. Swapped that for 2 years on N.Atlantic, on the Newfoundland. Must have been mad.
David

Hi David. Les was a gentleman but tended to fall out with the 2/E! I could write a book about my time on the Maltese. From the c/e telling me I was seeing things when I saw the steering quadrant rock (rudder pintail had sheared) to p ersuading a well known passenger that the Legion would shoot him going ashore in Algiers during curfew. Guns ready on shore. I was young. Regards Ian C

David. On the Newfoundland, I saw her come into Halifax after a Storm 10 crossing ( we made 5miles one day). One boat was hanging from its davit and a section of the foredeck rail missing. I believe the captain went to his cabin and d
ied. I had a chat with the C/E of Black Prince when I was a dockyard apprentice. My dad was Furnesses Stevedore Super in Leith. Small world! Regards. Ian C
