I will always remember Tommy Teapot (Seymour) the Chief Engineer, who had more than a passing resemblance to Sid James asking me a very technical question in the machinery control room one watch. The question was 'where is the fresh water evaporator on this ship?a??. I breathed a sigh of relief as I definitely knew the answer!

We entered the Suez Canal on route to the Gulf when the war broke out. We were stuck in the Lakes for 2 nights blacked out while planes were being fired within sight. Eventually allowed to proceed to load up in the gulf. Then plans changed and sailed to Japan. Quite an interesting trip
