Hi Chas
Just found your post when trawling through old threads. I was 4/O in Strathmore in 1960, the Capt. was Leonard Henry Howard, Staff Capt. was Tom Whinyates and C/O John Chester (who was later Commodore).
Regards
Ian

I never sailed on the Strathmore but I did sail in her (it's much nicer that way) in February 1955 as a passenger. Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how one looks at it I had to leave her in Aden-I did so want to go all the way to Australia but it wasn't to be.

A lovely ship and what a lovely way to travel it was.
