"PENTAKOTA" (courtesy of Captain John Cole)

After getting my Second Mate's certificate in July 1958 I joined the "Pentakota" as 3rd Officer for six weeks.


I then returned to the "Chindwara" in my new capacity in September 1958 and left her in January 1959 when she went to Glasgow to be converted from carrying 39 to 52 cadets.   I myself went to stand by the new building tanker "Queda" in Scott's shipyard, Greenock.
