KEN AMESS

KENNETH HARRY AMESS  tel/graph He was recommended to the captain on his first night on board as he spotted a fire nearby to the telegraphists room and it took awhile to put out, but he still stayed at his post and was only 17  coming up 18 years old.      Another interesting fact is that when the Japanese surrendered at the end of the war one of the head men of a nearby small island had to hand over their sword to the captain who put it up for a raffle prize draw which Kenneth won.
