    Default Tar Boat

    Hi Trevor,
    Your comment about the 'dreaded tar boat' has me puzzled,I was under the impression they were good jobs, running up the Yankee coast,cost of living allowance etc..

    Cheers,

    Hi Brian, I was a EDH from October 1970 until April 1971, I do remember going to Brunei also, I seem to remember one hell of a night in Saigon where we on the deck had a huge party including locals.

    I live in Australia now and have done for 40 years, retiring next year,.

    All the best

    Keith
