I joined Aluco as first trip Deck apprentice on 10th October 1959 - 57 years ago today! With Paul Munns, Paddy Slinger, and Richard Lawson. I was assigned to the middle 12 to 4 watch under second officer Jim Connolly who had gained his certifications through correspondence courses whilst an able seaman. Over the following months Jim taught me to recognise most of the major star constellations something I have never forgotten. I also sailed on Horomya,Velutina(2), Volvatella,Amastra(2), Verena,Opalia, Halia, and San Fernando as well as attending mid apprenticeship course 3 (MAR 3) in 1961 at Plymouth but they are another story!
