At sea, we often did not appreciate the menus and selection of food. Now, looking back forty years, I can understand the time and effort that must have been put into the variety of foods.
As apprentices, we tended to eat everything! Even the little "weevily-things" that floated up in our morning Wheatbix when you added the milk.
I received an email from an ex-BP crew member who commented that he could almost taste the food again after reading these menus.
