I was seconded to British India Steam Navigation Company working in the Exchange Office on Uganda for the second half of 1969. Your mention of shots being fired off Gibralter rang a bell - I was on the Uganda for this cruise - I have a copy of the Daily Telegraph for October 27th 1969 which carries a report of the incident on the front page. I can send you a photocopy or scan if you wish. I also remember the rough sea which you mention - it was just off Malta and the worst that I experienced in all the cruises that I was on.
