    Hello Bev,
    Thanks for your reply, what ships did you sail on at this time? we may have sailed with some of the same people as I was with Elders from 1969 until 1975 when I moved to Palm Line. I can still remember some of the people from other ships I sailed on during this time.

    Hadn't checked this site for a while but just have. Well remember 'Dad's Tash'. Anyone out there remember the 'College of Complexes' another favoured 'Village haunt' back in the late '50s early '60s?

    Chris, am I right in thinking you and I were on the Dunkwa together? I was on Dunkwa and Dumurra, around 1970 to 1972, as radio officer.
