I've just had a friend visiting me from NSW. We both started our apprenticeships with J&E Hall Dartford in August 1953 and both joined P&O five years later as refrigeration engineers. He went to the SS Strathnaver then he spent a long period of time on the fully refrigerated cargo ship SS Aden. His name is Laurie Woollcott if any of the old timers are around.
Lucky for him he’s returning to Oz on a QE2 52 day cruise via the states, West Indies, Panama, states, Honolulu with about 30 days at sea. Only wish I could go with him.
Very best wishes for the New Year to all you Seadogs.
