    PS Hope you weren,t expected to wear them went you went ashore, even though they obviously must have been the height of fashion at the time.

    PPS. One more query l have - were these bespoke waistcoats a single use garment, then disposed of, or were they directed to Charlie Chan, the Chinese laundryman to put into his machine for a quick whirl, together with the officers "whites", for re-use by the apprentices at a future date ?

    #41... Ivan who used to contribute to this site with some good memories of life on the ocean wave. Had an infallible way of dressing for going ashore, he used to get all his wardrobe from the rag bag. Probablyif he went ashore with another apprentice the same way inclined , went down the gangway singing Rogers and Hammersteins “ we”re a couple of swells “ , going ashore like that didn’t matter if you fell over , would still get up smelling of whatever you smelt of before. “ poor”. #42.. went probably back to their original use as the apprentices wardrobe. Cheers JS

    Richard i am so sorry you are correct in saying Barry was a tanker graveyard, i must have been dreaming of far distant places. There was for a time a few old BP tankers late 50s laid up but went for Breaking in the end. In the early 60s there were a few Bird Class BP tankers laid up, but went to new owners or back into service. On the buoys were three cargo ships and a BP tanker (loaded) all went back into service. Sorry about that Cheers for now AJ
