The last Mate visits Cambria

David Rye drew my attention today, via Facebook, to a lovely film about Cambria, starring Dick Durham.

I hadn’t seen the film before and it’s absolutely fascinating.   There are some great pictures of Cambria, below deck, as she is now and some old pictures too including some nice shots of Bob Roberts.

Dick tells some wonderful stories about his fourteen months as the last Mate of Cambria when she was in trade.   He was a handsome young man of 18 at the time.

Here’s the link to the film.
