Bellboy to Barman by Roger, M Rogers


Bellboy to Barman by Roger, M Rogers

The story of a sixteen year old boy who joined the British Merchant Navy in the 1950's. From sea training school, first trip on an oil tanker to Eygpt and Middle East. Passenger liner for two years on South American run as Bellboy. Troop ship to the Far East during the Suez crisis. Cape ships to South Africa and two years on Britain's first premier cruise liner as a cocktail barman. Told as it happened sometimes x-rated. The reason for this book I am always being asked to recount my tales at sea. After you have read this would you allow your sixteen year old son to go to sea? I don't think so.
