NEVASA "SUSPECTED" PIRATE ATTACK

 

Recorded on the Nevasa scrap run in 1975 by Steve B. 

 

The very calm and composed voice is Ted Banks, 2nd Officer on the day.

 

"A suspicious looking boat is approaching the ship from forrad. It is suspected that the men in the boat intend to board the ship and help themselves to items of Ship's equipment. The "Attack Party" and "Closing Down Party" rig and man fire hoses in the A deck port alleyway. "Back Up Party" and "Boat Launching Party" rig and man fire hoses in the A deck starboard alleyway. All other available hands to assist as required. The Attack Party and Closing Down Party rig and man fire hoses in the A deck port alleyway. Back Up Party and Boat Launching Party rig and man fire hoses in the A deck starboard alleyway. All other available hands to assist as necessary. The signal for a suspected Pirate raid is the general emergency alarm."

 

The next sound heard is the engineer's emergency bells.

 

The next voice is Willy Paterson, Chief Engineer talking to me as I was about to leave my cabin saying "It's not "Boat Stations", it's not "Boat Stations", it's the bloody Pirates!"  

 

Then the magnificent sound of Nevasa's whistle.

 

Spine tingling stuff!
