    I quess things must have changed but I served on the Good Hope Castle in 1954 and Port Jackson in 1955 and found everyone normal on both ships, normal by seagoing standards of course.

    Cheers, Rodney

    Great story, thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Thank you Rodney for a most interesting description of that voyage.
    I have not been to sea and found your story to be really interesting.
