Highlights of Career

1. Enjoying Billy Byles’ compulsory fraternising with passengers mantra. No officer was allowed to stand around drinking when ever a female passenger was looking for a dance.

2. Going out in a lifeboat in mid-Atlantic to take the doctor to another ship that had a crew member with suspected appendicitis. Massive waves!

3. Taking a hat-trick in the Officers v Passengers cricket match. I think it was Sir Richard McAlpine who kindly stood the drinks after Stan Harron (Chief Engineer) had warned me before bowling the third delivery.
