Back in the 1950s, my parents befriended the 4 apprentices from Runic when she was in Port Adelaide and I was away as an apprentice with Adelaide Steamship Co. They kept up the friendship for some years, to the extent that they visited their families in the UK on their "retirement tripin the early 1960s. One of the lads bought a sextant for me in the UK as it was almost impossible to obtain one in Oz.Sadly, I lost contact with them after my parents died but would be interested to hear if they are still around. My Dad was a baker in North Adelaide, named Rowland King.
