I was the PO on watch at the time it happened.
A real scary moment for me and my crew of stokers.
Never want to go through that again, but now I am in civvy street that is unlikely.
I still have nightmares about it.
I had the year wrong, I thought it was 1974 that it occurred.Old age is catching up fast on me, memory problems.
