Thanks for that, Cheddarnibbles. I remember PPO Harrison's interest in the sea-birds, and years ago I noticed one of his titles for sale in a bookshop in NZ.cheddarnibbles said:Chris, Captain Harrison on the tanker KENT in 1963 was a sea-bird fanatic and wrote several books. We (his navigating officers) were instructed to call him should we ever spot an unusual one.
Stormy Petrels were very common, so we pulled his leg one day and called him to the bridge to view a Stormy Av-Gas. !!!! And, yes, he fell for it.
