Alison Harris was inspired to join the Merchant Navy by friends who would send her postcards from around the world. She was on an educational cruise on the SS Uganda when it was requisitioned, converted to a hospital ship, and sent to the Falklands. She speaks fondly  of the ship, the crew and her role as an administrator in the war.
