Thanks to all for the nice comments.

Bob I was also on the Pendennis Castle back in 1966-67, started off as Officers Steward in the first class Restuarant, Dusty Miller was the Head waiter and the Officers tables were the first tables inside the Resturuant doors, brings back some memories, might have served your breakfast at some time, I was only 18 at the time but I used to take a model with me to work on, I've also downloaded your Scratch building Merchant Ships, very interesting, might be a bit small scale for me but plenty of useful info, best regards John,

Hi John,
Thanks for info. At that time, I was in Windsor Castle, I didn't get to Pendennis Castle until 1973. Sailed with Dusty Miller for years & years. He ended up as chief catering officer aboard RMS St. Helena in the 80s.
Glad you enjoyed the download. I went from large scale to miniature scale literally overnight (because it was more convenient at sea) and always found it easier.

Hi Bob,
I got it back to front, in 1966=67 I was on the Windsor Castle as a officers steward, I have a photo of me standing in front of the very large mural on the back of the Dinning Room wall, and I was on the Pendennis Castle in 1969-70 as a tourist class waiter.
