Also did 3 voyages on Benreoch as deck cadet in 1967/68. A well kept ship which holds many happy memories. I recall carrying a new innovation on deck called a container. They will never catch on was the consensus of the old hands. Well!

I also did three 'deep sea' and two 'coasts' from 1968 as a cadet. Happy days, except for having to bail out the hatch tents during monsoon season out east!

I did 1 coast and 2 deep sea trips on the Benreoch as cook boy then assistant cook. I was on her when we took oot the highland game Caber for the first Jakarta Highland games, We were all invited to the games. She was a grand old Lady, and I am proud to have sailed on her, along some great shipmates.
