Joined the HANETIA new in Middlesbrough loaded in Rotterdam for Curacao then back loaded there, Bullen Bay and Cardon for Gibraltar - Suez - Port Sudan - Massawa - Karachi - Colombo - finally dropping off the last of the cargo at Budge Budge - then Bukom where I paid off to join the NORTHIA.
My diary tells me that the 2nd Mate was not the nicest of persons to know (a common view amongst most of the crew).
I re-joined her again the following year, again in Middlesbrough but did not sail on her as was transferred to the LATIA working on the Italian Coast.

Flew out to Singapore October 1969 to wait for the Hanetia to arrive. We stayed at Connell House,an old collonial hotel. I think we were there about a week or so, great place!! The older lads introduced me to the delights of Boogy Street, with all it's charms. Ha Ha. I remember there was another catering boy (think he was from Yorkshire), we had a good laugh with the local ladies.Anyway the Hanetia docked and we joined it on the 30th October 1969. I can't remember where we went first but I know we were in Viet-nam over Christmas and New year 1969. Great time and double pay!!!
