Other cadets I can still remember, were three lads from Belfast, Sav, Mutt, etc etc Please get in touch if you have any contacts. Terry Howlett

    Hi Chris,

    Just found your group photo on the Lucknow - I'm the tallest one in the middle! Great pic and brings back lots of happy memories of my time on the Lucknow. Subsequently did one SA trip on the Hull before spending almost 2 years on the City of Melbourne on the MANZ run - could have stayed on her forever. Happy days.

    Hope all is well with you - I'm just getting older.

    Very best wishes,
    John Bell
