Memoirs of a P&O Ship’s Telephonist
by FREDA BASSINGALE

In 1968, Freda Bassindale quit the Edinburgh City Police and boarded SS Iberia for a new job as a telephonist. For the next five years, she cruised the world with P&O, enjoying her life at sea and the exotic destinations she explored along the way. Fifty years later, the discovery of a forgotten box of letters, booklets, diaries and photographs brought memories of people and places flooding back – of a time before mobile phones and internet, when travel was still an adventure. We join Freda in the Mediterranean, the West Indies, West Africa, Madeira and around the world. Spanning 147 pages and littered throughout with fascinating photos, it’s a real page-turner and once started, it’s hard to put down. Very highly recommended.
