Starring with Bob Hope

The road to Milford Haven

When you return home after a six month trip and your leave goes speedily by and you are down to the last two weeks  you dread every ring of the telephone as I could be the London office personnel Dept requesting that you come back early or telling you your next ship is delayed and you have to go on a course. You learn to put up with that as well as your relations asking “when are you going back?” Thus one afternoon whilst doing the garden I had a phone call from Malcolm Corner in our Personnel Dept. He told me that Texaco needed a serving Master to evaluate a new ship handling simulator course to see if it was satisfactory for training Navigating Officers.
