I remember that visit well as I was on leave at the time and just got back onboard as they were about to sail! I just made it but got "Captain's Table" and was awarded 10 days stoppage of pay and 10 days leave. As we were at sea the 10 days leave didn't matter but the stoppage of pay was a bit sore!
