Spent 9 months on this lovely old ship in 1971, circumnavigated the earth on her. She used to break down dead on 1000 hrs just in time for smoko...

I spent 8 months on her 1970 to 71 as navigating cadet circumnavigating the planet. She broke down 53 times so was glad I was not an engineer! A great experience though. Joined the RAF after that voyage!
