    Benlomond controls 1972

    Photo taken at the manoeuvring platform of the Benlomond round about 1972/73, think that this was the 8/12 watch. Myself with Vick Melina(spelling) the junior engineer, and also Zoonie the donkeyman, real name I think was Chang Lam. Very happy ship with a great crew on a good run, not much more a yo

    On her way to Taiwanese breakers, October 1977. I'm sure this photo was actually taken on the 14th October, while at anchor, the day before we ran her up on the beach.
