Vitamin C is essential in both face creams and diet because it is necessary for the formation of collagen, the protein that gives skin its elasticity and strength. As an antioxidant it destroys harmful free radicals in the body, caused by pollution, stress and a poor diet. If unchecked, these attack the skin and lead to premature ageing.

We could usually bank on a skilled day on ropes and wires every couple of weeks, together with the dreaded tank-cleaning about once a month. When the weather turned and the sea was up, we were either given a storeroom to paint out, a water tank to scrape and paint, or were given to the Casab as tools for him to work. The day started with a call from Ben at 06.30. He was sent down from the bridge by LJ. We washed, dressed in uniform, and went along for breakfast at 07.00. Breakfast was always big: juice, kippers, kedgeree, bacon and eggs, toast and tea or coffee. We needed our fuel. The Chinese steward was always pleased to see the three of us and fussed around to make sure we had what we wanted.
