  1. My first ship as a Apprentice, joined in Liverpool, Gladstone Dock.
    Ship was on a Blue Funnel charter to Australia.
    Master was Capt Niblock.
    Vessel had wooden decks throughout( including main deck). After Completion Australian coastal voyage completing in Brisbane vessel went to Nauru to load Phosphate for New Plymouth, NZ. Carpenter and apprentices spent voyage Brisbane to Nauru making wooden pallets so that the grabs employed in the discharge of the phosphate never touched the main deck.
