Margaret Lyall from Livingston (ex Markinch). Posted 13 Dec 2005.
I was on the Devonia in 1962 to Corunna, Lisbon and Vigo. The seasickness sufferers suffered becasue they believed that the Irish Sea and Bay of Biscay were always rough and everyone would be sick! Although it has to be said that one of our party really did suffer from seasickness. We were enamoured with the Merchant Cadets on board - I think they were there to provide us with "eye candy" (not that it was called that in our day.)
