2nd. Mate on the old Glenbank en route Panama-Australia on 53 day trip. He it was, I think, who mentioned to an Aussie docker that fresh water for showering was still being hand pumped and carried from aft by the apprentices every day, resulting in immediate blacking of the vessel on the Aussie coas
Painting, slowly, on the Glenbank in 1953. Hardly believe you could ever finish a ship with brushes let alone keep it going for 30 years.
Note temporary absence of white patrol uniform and polished brass telescope
