  1. 6 Aug 1980. Crestbank seen entering the River Mersey from Birkenhead system, on charter to the Liverpool company Harrison Line. I was the Harrison Line ‘Supercargo’ and sailed in the ship until the final port Dar Es Salaam. We carried standard UK export stuff for Port Sudan, Djibouti, Mombasa and Dar. As the next charter voyage was Durban loading a cargo of wheat, we sold all the brand new ‘dunnage’ and went ashore for a meal in a hotel. Capt Young was the CO and the Mate, forgotten his name, was a hoot. A great experience of the famous Bank Line and a voyage I remember fondly.
