I first joined the Donax as 2nd Mate on the 7th June 1967. When she was the first British Tanker to have completed the round trip to the Gulf and back during the latest war between Israel and Eygpt . She had made headlines in the "Liverpool Echo" and I have a copy of the newspaper photo showing her berthing at Tranmere on that day.
I was subsequently Chief gficer in 1973 and Captain in 1983.
