The Insubordinate Seaman

Part of the Business Case Studies book series (BCS)


Mick O’Leary is thirty-four years old. He entered the Merchant Service on leaving school at the age of fifteen and has been with the present company, the Stag Line Ltd, for the past seven years. He has a clean record sheet and has always been regarded as a stolid but reliable man. Two years ago he married an attractive twenty-two-year-old girl, Molly. Their sudden courtship and marriage came as a surprise to Pat Doyle, a close friend with whom O’Leary had sailed on a number of ships. He remarked on the contrast between Mick’s reserve and Molly’s vitality.
