Surely as Ch.Off I managed to find you a few more interesting jobs than that.Were you on board when we won the football pools and thought we were all going to be millionaires?

MH,You are certainly right about John Potter he was a real gentleman,sailed with him when he was both C/Off & master,unfortunately I hear that he has since passed away.Also Jimmy Potts the Chief Steward was also a well known character on the NE Coast.Also remember sailing with "BamBam",but failing memory can't remember which ship.

I relieved Kevin Campbell in Yokohama and was on board when the Pinewood ran aground off Vancouver.When we got back to the U.K. she was sold to the Fred Olsen line which ended a great experience on a great ship with many good shipmates.
