    I was on the AURIS from 19 August 1959 to 18 October 1959,
    From Camel Lairds after being given a new Gast Turbine engine, just went to Curacao and stayed there, I was shanghaied on a Topsail Schooner for a few weeks and the Auris was still there when I got back to Curacao, Captain Brown let me off with a logging as he was an old Sailing shoip[ man, served his apprenticeship on the Cape Horner, MONKBARNS.
    Good trip.

    This was possibly the trip I did on the Auris back to uk. Captain Brown was ok. I scraped taff rails all the way home. Engine stopped during dinner one night and the BTH tech had to rush off.
