    My Discharge Book is/was R909653 issued Sept 1972 - This had pages for DRs etc. Was reissued with newer Book minus the DRs in November 1972. My first ship was MV "British Gannet" and it appears by itself in one and the updated was the start of 43 years of working the worlds’ oceans.
    Hope the above makes sense.

    Presumably so as I got my “new” discharge book in 1973

    - - - Updated - - -

    Don’t know when the “pree R” discharge books finished but in 1972 I sailed with a Chief Steward who was still using his original “book”from when he first went to sea about 40 years previously
    He was a man who favoured long voyages!
