"Goldmouth" was my first seagoing ship and was a bunkership in Singapore.
We serviced many ships off Pulo Bukum going alongside larger vessels and
having smaller ones come to us.At this time the French were about to be evicted
from Indochina and we fuelled many large troopships full of North African soldiers
from the French colonies going north to Saigon.
"Goldmouth"was in poor condition,and was used as a dormatory for officers waiting
to join ships or go on leave.
