Last Position 2nd Purser Catering on Reina Del Mar
Great period. Left in 1972. Experienced the Good Hope Castle as Purser/Catering Officer as well as Rochester Castle, all good although I did not appreciate it at the time.
Went back to sea in 1989 as Chief Purser on Hebridean Princess for 12 years. A job I would never have got without the experience with Union-Castle.
Was on Reina Del Mar when the safe was robbed and got arrested (along with others) for it.
Also on SA Vaal when a passenger jumped overboard and was found again.
Now do after lunch talks on my experiences.
Now living in Bingley, Yorkshire.
