Described by the Marconi company staff clerk as 'Not a Cunarder', the Allenwell turned out to be a dirty, down-at-heel cargo ship with crew to match, and Norman Freeman had signed up as radio officer for a three-month trip from Liverpool to the USA. Some of the cargo – Scotch whisky – didn't make it that far. Freeman's memoir of this 1961/62 trip is an entertaining and sometimes poignant account of 'a very odd ship and an unusual voyage'.
