Joined in 85 as a 2 star stoker, straight from course in Sultan, picked up my hook on arrival and was made killick of two mess stokers, next door to the s&s mess, good times, went to Brazil (6 months) and West Africa fantastic days. Left waiting to pick up my poms in 88, easy life but the best ship I ever served on.

I sailed on her final voyage from Rushbrook, Cork, Rep of Ireland to her destination of Alang in India in 2004 as the Bligh. It was very sad to run her up on the beach, incidently we had a crew of 13.
