Joined in Greenock and had to put first stabbing off with pilot at "tail of Bank"..Glasgow and Greenock crew !! DR was a status symbol.Three month trip lasted 11 months. BOT rations fab way to lose weight and never seen a kipper cut into 3 pieces..Companies men got two pieces.Chasing about ocean looking for rain water.Broken down off Aleutians for 8 days .Capt said not to talk to other ships did,nt want them to know we were broken down.We rolled to 47Deg.!!! Max was calculaed at 49Deg.or she would,nt come back.
