I sailed on the Dunera September i think 1958, i was at Polymedia Camp 37 Field Engineers though I was attached in the Royal Signals as radio mechanic, as attached personel we got out of any duties and lived in our own compound in the camp.
When I was demobbed it was the Dunera that took me home. The food was not too good and the ship rolled when it was rough, I was sad to see the ship was broken up only 9 years later, I well remember being on baggage duty and taking all the kit bags out to Dunera,
I was demobbed in October 1958,the voyage was about three weeks so I think it wouold have been September voyage.
We were up high above in Cyprus looking out to Akrotiri and i still remenber seeing the Dunera arrive and the thrill I felt that it would be taking me home,
I am nearly 73 yrs old now but still remember the lads in the signals troop especially “Woody” who came from Grantham. Wonder where they are all now.
