Anyone recognise this Motley Crew?
« on: Oct 09, 2014, 04:26 PM »
Going through some old pictures taken on board in the late 70's - early 80's. I remember them all, but not all of their names.

Anyone care to have a go?

Now - I could probably blame the computer for this and actually get away with it. No one would know!  ;D

Anyway - It wasn't - it was just plain total incompetence. (Nothing Changes) !

Hopefully I have managed to attach the photo this time. Apologies.

Interesting. I remember them all - but not their names except for Alan Dale, so you've knocked one more off the list Rod - cheers!

Well Rod you got me right, I am John Drew in the center at the back, I remember all the faces but not names, I am going to visit another ex crew member in March 2015 ( Paul Fisher) in Southampton so will take a copy with me and ask him, his memory is crisp. It is the first time I have seen the photo and am always looking for more.

Hello Rod,

I will say Hi from you to Paul in a few weeks, what part of the country (England) are you based? I will be traveling around quite a bit for three weeks. It would be great to chat.

Hello Rod,

I just heard about this on our 7 pm ZBM news, it's the Norwegian Dawn that seems to have gone aground in the North Channel, after it left our Dock Yard berth. Now the pilot should have been on board and awake, so am not sure why but hopefully will get more details in the morning. The shipping channels are due to be dredged again to make them fit for the newer class of cruise ships which are a little wider and deeper draft and I believe they are due to start arriving here next year. I must say though there is not a lot of room for mistakes out there but the good old QE2 had no problems rest assured. John.

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.
