    Stand still nobody move. ! JWS. Bit of a problem if they all wanted to go to the toilet at the same time, before the days of sewage tanks as well imagine, just think of the pollution, or the overflow of the sewage system. JS

    No manner of queuing with such persons would ever work.

    They came, they sat, they ate simple.

    But tis looks like some form of troop carier.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I know someone out here Brian who was a bellboy on her in 1948. He was a chief steward out here with ANL for a few years before retiring . Has not been too well for a few years due to old age. JWS
