Derbyshire

I remember the Derbyshire very well, and read with intregue some of the mails and books that try to identify what really happened.

Most of what I read makes sense as I was only 23 years of age when I joined the vessel in Japan with the majority of people who where lost in such tragic circumstances.

I left the vessel after a very torrid 3 months in which I witnessed many failings on what should of been a fantastic sea ship.

However what I can say is that without the dedication of Paul Lambert and the families association many more vessels may have foundered.
