Re: Capt. Harry Spencer

My father Norman Slade told stories about Captain Hurricane Harry Spencer. One time they had a big ceremony for throwing an admirals ashes into the sea off the side of The ship. A gust of wind came up and blew the ashes back on deck. After a long awkward silence Captain Spencer came over the load speaker and said. " Mr. Slade sweep that son of a ***** off the deck and lets get on with this'.

Thanks -
I had heard this story from the son of Eivind Bornholdt. It's great to have more details
