    I had a really good friend who sailed on the British Soldier in 1963. His name was Peter Watts and he was in the catering dept. could have been a steward or training as a cook. I wonder if you can recall him?

    I am new to the site so maybe getting this wrong. I sailed on British Honour 1964/65, then 1966/1967. Best ship I ever sailed on, many times to Bandur Mashur but you can't have it all your own way
