    Default Re photos of the Andes

    My husband, Peter Harvey, was ship's photographer on the Andes from 1954 to 1960 and we have boxes and boxes of photos taken on board and ashore. I realise your father's birthday has gone now. Did you manage to get any photos to give him? If you ever need any more, let us know. (I used to be a telephonist on the Andes)

    PS Does your father know that the Royal Mail Association has get-togethers at various places all over the country so people can talk about the old times.What part of the country do you live in?

    Hi Pauline.
    Welcome to the site, the best there is for MN. I passed the Andes at sea a few times she was a lovely ship.
    You should post some of your pics on site, to let others see how nice she was.
    Enjoy your stay and hope you meet with some old shipmates.
    Cheers Des
