    I've just reread all posts on this thread,and it got me wondering-;was the Dolphin the only Sea Training School where Catering Trainees were taught splicing,both wire and manilla?That skill served me well in later years when I went to work on a land based drilling rig,and I was the only one who could splice.I had already learned while at sea that "a man splicing always looks busy"!Boy did I get all the miles out of that one!!!!

I was in the Mech for nearly five years, sailing with Blue Star, Ben Line, Shell, C.E.G.B., and Hains. Good days, bad days, I'd do it all over again. It would be great to have a reunion with other ex-Dolphin inmates, especially on the same period, but as they say up here, "Wha's like us. damn few an' they're a' deid".
