For what it might be worth, I have a vivid recollection of another Ellerman Line brochure in our school library in about 1958, the express purpose of which was to recruit deck cadets.

Not sure which the No 1 glass is - my preference is for bigger is best lol.

I have the pursers clock from City of Singapore - bought it on eBay from the last purser O/B (have to dig out the documents for his name when I can!). Still works and though I cant drink G and T from it; it does remind me when the time is right.

Other odds and sods from eBay (cards, sailor doll, tea pots and platters etc.

Must be becoming a bit of a hoarder!

The No1 glass was the big gobblet type. No3 being the smallest.

Re other stuff I did have a MANZ line House Flag. It could still be in the loft in a case.

Re No1 glass very good for Cape Coffee. 2 Fingers Van der Humm 2 fingers Cape Smoke top off with coffee and float cream. Had a night on then on the way up to Beira. Got up to relieve you feeling no pain. Next thing was the Navy on the lamp asking silly questions as to why we had doubled back. That was when we found out where we were. No sat Nav in those days.
