    Default Cadet Ship Film

    Hello all,

    I am writing humerous novel very loosely based on my first trip on a Clan Line cadet ship. If you were there don't worry your secrets are safe as none of the book characters are real! What I would like to know is what was the name of the film which we were all shown about venereal disease? The one which stopped us getting any nooky for a few ports? Such a long time ago that things like that are easily forgotten

    Best regards to all

    Danny

    Hello Danny,
    I don't recall any film about VD, but there were many posters issued by B&C showing the graphic results of VD. There were safety films that were placed on board with the film reels, but I cannot recall the name of the company.They also had them on the acceptable length - again this did not have any effect.
    I think we may have sailed together on the Nina Bowater out of Cornerbrook in the mid 70's.
    Cheers

    The Old VD film was part of a series which I think came from the Merchant Navy training board I remember seeing that one and a couple of out ships fires and what about what to do in case of a nuclear attack but can't remember the name if you put a note on the Facebook page for British and Commonwealth I know at least one of the old training officers looks in there from time to time you might get an answer
    Rob Page R855150 - British & Commonwealth Shipping ( 1965 - 1973 ) Gulf Oil -( 1973 - 1975 ) Sealink ( 1975 - 1986 )

    Ah Cornerbrook, now there was place if ever, 9:1 ratio of women to men during the week, 11:1 at weekends, go into a bar and the women would get up and invite you to sit with them; most hospitable place.
