    Smile Doris s Bar

    Yep one of our main calls in the fifties. I was A/S on Loch Garth, Durango,Drina, Gascony during the late forties and fifties. Appleton Estate rum and coke and of course dusky maidens, cant recall much hassle there either in those days. The Myrtle Bank hotel almost next door to the wharf was a great place for a swim,drinks bit more expensive. Local kids swam in the dock area diving for pennies but didnt fancy that saw some big wildlife also swimming there.

    Alf mate why did you have to bring up Doris's bar? Oh what a place so many young men lead astray there by young maidens looking to please the so polite English seaman queing up outside the door. Oh the mamories thta place brings back.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Kingston Jamaica - Thank goodness those days are over - Doris's bar, only place I have seen the juke box covered in barbed wire! Then there was 4 1/2 Rum Lane.
    Is Kingston still as unsafe as ever it was?

    Cool Bars and Brothels

    Hi Fellas.
    There seems to be a lot of talk about Bars and Brothels,
    but no mention of Churches and Chapels,not even a
    mention of the Seaman Missions.

    Hi Nev,
    Same kinda thing.
    Garbage guy in Kinston found me somewhere. Next thing I remember I was on the top of his truck heading back to the ship. Wallet in tact.
    Don't know how he knew wich ship I was from?
