    #1.I never sailed on Bowater boats, however, while in Cornerbooke loading paper for Australia the Constance Bowater was alongside next to my ship the MV Eugenie S Embiricos (Around April 1968). I invited myself on board to exchange books and to chat with British sailors. I presented the crew's bar with a Chinese lamp, I'd bought earlier in Hong Kong. After a few drinks in the bar and singing all the songs in my repertoire I refused to leave and return to my ship. The Eugenie was about to sail. They couldn't go without a radio officer. Firstly the 3rd mate came to get me off, then the chief mate pleading with me to return to my ship. I refused, digging my heels in. Anyway, the captain of the Constance Bowater persuaded me to rejoin the Eugenie S Embiricos. I was sad to leave the British ship. I'd been on the Greek flagged ship for 13 months and was homesick.

    Does anyone have access to the Nina Bowater crew list? My father in law Ron Banerji was an engineer on that ship in 1972. I'm trying to peice together his history. Any info would be great thanks.
