I was a deck boy although later promoted to the dizzy heights of junior seaman from 1972 to 1973. I remember we were anchored of East Africa for ages and the Chief mate took some of us on a motor launch up a river infested with insects and yelling monkeys in the jungle shoreline. What an adventure.. I was only bloody 16 or 17.. I`m 62 now !! Take care all you old Hima`s

Hima was both a very happy ship but had its very sad moments.

At 16 years of age it was the adventure of a life-time. Left Hemisinus in Singapore along with three other cadets (T.G Dan - the brains of the outfit - from Dumbarton). A lad whose surname was Bailey and an engineering apprentice whose surname was Palmer. If memory serves the company even lodged us in the Raffles Hotel whilst awaiting transfer to the Hima. If any of the afore-mentioned read this anecdote: Hi guys.
