I served in Orcades as Senior Fourth Officer, from March 1965 - January 1966, under Captains Britain and  Riddelsdell, engaged on main line voyages to Australia & New Zealand and Australian and  Mediterranean cruising.

I kept the 12-4 watch as Junior OOW together with the Senior Second Officer.

And breakfast meal reliefs as OOW

Carried out a perfect Williamson Turn after spotting a man on a raft off the US West Coast....only to discover it was a UCLA student hoax!
