In Colman Shaughnessy’s words:- “On a cold December –Sunday afternoon at Glasgow in 1973, I was the one to raise the fire alarm – as I returned from the telephone kiosk on the docks, from a snowy/icy quay, I was met with heavy smoke through the lower deck from the engine room and hit the alarm button on the bridge. The ship was towed down river for repairs for fire damage. I left for home two days later. It was so strange to be on a ship, in dock with no power, cold and smell of burning etc.”
