    Have we forgotten the "Cunard Yanks " LOL

    And the Scouse and Mouche Seaman Names!

    I guess there are many more too, but do not at this time come to mind! ?
    Anyone with anymore!

    Now you bring back names Vernon, yes recall all of them.

    There was a bar in Southampton high Street, Scullards if I recall.
    You would see the Cunard Yanks in there.
    Easy to spot, always had a one pound note tucked into the watch band.

    Yes Vernon, memories and also many a lost night in the alcoholic blur of the times.
    But given the chance would do it all again.

    Main Street of Wellington NZ was Cuba street, used to call the Kiwis,Cuba street Poms, as they tried to emulate the blokes of the pommy ships. The girls knew the difference, the blokes never asked for fush and chups.

    Des ,mate, when you stop laughing then that is it.
    A smile a day keeps the doctors away.

    While in hospital I discovered why there were three wise men in Bethlehem that night.

    One to hold the ladder, two to untangle the lights.
