    Hi Keith,
    It’s I am of course referring to the RN contingent. The MN contingent was the usual MN BOT. However everyone was compatible if not you weren’t there very long. Cheers JWS.

Most seamen were probBly suffering a hangover and only too keen to get out of their environment and get a livener. When mate on Britishships the federation used to send down prospective new crew with pool papers and dis book and had to sign if acceptable. DRs and other endorsements didn’t mean too much to me as saw how. A lot were not justified. In fact. Worked to the good as their owners wanted clear books at the end of voyage and were incilined to take it easy. You could also refuse a DR and demand an ENR if so inclined. Later had to get a written copy of Log book entry, just think today could have hanging on the bulkhead like an old master, may even be worth some money, and could recoup losses of years ago. All changed today of course as no discharges as such. Cheers JWS.
    Many thanks for that John.
    wish I knew that in the mid 60's.
    Kind regards
