Just joined this GREAT site/forum. Going to add my BSL ships in a mo.The other two cadets were Tim Cowley (South Africa) and Chris Farlowe (Gravesend), Tim was replaced in New York by REG (Reg) Davies (Canada). Where are you guys?
Could have been the time I paid off in Galveston, 1974 about March.In the early 1970's ......... the Rockhampton Star had discharged her refrigerated cargo, on the Gulf coast and then proceeded to Galveston. She was there at a lay berth...for several weeks.
I was a Deck Cadet, at Texas A&M Galveston......we lived aboard the Texas Clipper (former USS Queens / SS Excambion). We did visit the ship on several occasions.....and managed to entertain the officers, with some Texas Bar-B-Que and adult beverages.
I recall when she departed....she did fly a Texas flag, we had donated to her crew.......
