In early leaves I used to drink with Cecil Kennaugh just retired Chief Super of the IoM Steam Packet (and the amazing sidecar driving Mabel, both sea swimming daily into their eighties). When I joined the office it was in the closing year of Eddie Bruce's reign in a similar capacity for DSM.

Suffice it to say that their memories of one another when Morar was lying disabled in Laxey bay did not entirely coincide. "Denholms seemed to think we had an entire free drydock facility in Fort Street". Another drinking friend whose name I can no longer remember (lived in Laxey) had been Master of Rembrandt.

I'll post the same on SH and return favour.
