    On the MEDIA of Cunard we had a lad from New York in the crows nest all the way to Liverpool,
    and on the Dunedin Star a fireman brought his brother back from Melbourne to England, unfortunately he was epileptic and was always having fits, and it was quite a job every week on Masters Inspection shuffling him around so he would not be seen,
    at Christmas in Dunkirk he was arrested by the Police and locked up for three days, the Captain went and bailed nhim out thinking he was the Fireman and logged him three days pay plus the fines.
    He went ashore in Hull and got the train to Liverpool and George , his brother collapsed and died in Hull due to all the strain

    On the GEORGIC taking 10 Poms to Oz we had four stowaways , but they were put ashore in Las Palmas.
