So glad I have been a M(aritime) O(fficer) for most of my career gentlemen; none of that sh.t of pointing engineers to officers and vice versa. You just did and were both at the same time.
Even now I oppose to these singe educated (minded) views, we are one team on board and have to sail the vessel all together!!

On any ship certified for unmanned operation, the machinery spaces may be unattended for a maximum period of 16 consecutive hours. Engineers are still needed for the rest of the time and for when things go wrong so the traditional deck/engineroom rivalry still goes on.

Brett, that is why they now have unmanned engine rooms....

As per Emmanuel.L, yes, "Apartheid" at it's best ! Still is to a large degree today between officers and ratings and Deck vs. Engine...however, without engineers onabord the deck officers are pretty much useless.....

Forward accommodation: Deckofficers + messroom
Aft accommodation under deck :
Port side engine crew and starboard side: deck crew.
Above deck: Front all engine officers
Aft galley and messroom etc.

European officers and Asian crew.... in the 60s and some even now today ,.....Apartheid at sea?

Beautiful photo. What was the purpose of the split accommodation? I guess officers forward and ordinary crew aft, sort of the elites don't mix with the proletariat :-)? Where was the galley and the eating space or did they have two?
