    Default Captain Cook

    There are a number of referances to the DM. and the Captain Cook, I first saw them in NZ in 1956, both were in Wellington at the same time i was on the Ruahine, even then the first night the two crews got together at the Trades Hall ( the dance hall that everyone from my era would have known ) there was a big bust up and some of both crews ended up in jail. from what i hear on that same trip the chief steward was thrown overboard into the dock off the C. Cook along with a load of the deck chairs, it used to be said that if you couldn`t get any other ship, that and the DM were the last resort.
