Re: Who else lived in my Oriana Engineer Cabin

When I first Joined Oriana in '76, I was dumped in the "Rabbit Hutch" just outside the Engineers Accomm (which, as my nickname was Bunny, I suppose was fate). When I was given the chance to move I promptly moved to DC141, despite it being next to the 2/E/O. (Brian Love, then Bruce Waller). The late Peter Bennett was in the next cabin and he was followed by Bob Parsons (who I sailed with aboard Uganda).

I remember there being some orange coloured crepe paper in the light fitting giving the cabin a less harsh glow in the evenings (I wonder why?!)

I was mad about Jimi Hendrix and still love the blues guitar music.

When I left Australia to join P & O in June 1970, I intended to see Jimi Hendrix somewhere. All the other JEs were astounded that a boy from Australia even knew about Jimi. Unfortunately Jimi died early on my first trip (I think August or September 1970). I remember the boilermaker making a special trip down to the engine room to give me the news.
