The ship

On the ship I befriended Roy, a 22-year-old cockney who had been a fireman in London. He was to disembark at Port Adelaide, South Australia. John, a policeman from Nottingham, occupied the bunk above mine. His destination was Sydney, where a job awaited him with the NSW police force. I was to leave the ship at Fremantle.
