Made contact with pals off the Arcadia late 60's

Hi Old Seadogs,
On 21st Jan,this tear I placed an article in the Daily Mail,Saturday edition to chase
6 pals that sailed together 14th Set 1967-3rd April 1969 & we were Bedroom Stewards.
A photo of us [1st July 1968] on a beach at Palma Nova,last port of call to England was shown & I was looking for Terry Morris,Canvey Island,Essex,Brian Banks,Coventry,
Donovan Youngman,Ipswich,Ian Balls,Beccles,Suffolk,Norman Henthorne,South Coast,Robert Linden,Belfast but married South Wales.Also not on photo Pip Melia,Market Bosworth,Leics.
Sorry to say,the last 2, Bob & Pip have passed away.Not found Norman.
But good news is that after 48 years Terry,Brian,Brian & Don have all been found.
A reunion being arranged.
Anyone who remembers any of us,please advise.

We 5 met in Norwich on 6/7 March & had an amazing time & great laugh.
We've also been in touch with Norman Henthorne & will be catching up again soon.
We want now to find Brian Husband who was a great mate to us on the ASrcadia in the late 60's-Where are you ,Brian?
