I have attached a photo of the bridge staff of Arcadia. I am back row second from left. Head down to stop my cap blowing off. Centre back row is Mark Hoddinott and next to him I think its Dave Christie. Would appreciate help remembering  the rest as it was a long time ago.

This is Rollo doing his Customs Officer sketch, which consisted of him screaming at the girl to take her clothes off. (Remarkably similar to his wheeling-in technique, as I recall...)

 

David Saunders advises the lady is Louise Hicks (WAP)

 

There's more photos of this revue in David Saunders' Memories.

Engine Room Dec 1976

Courtesy of Bill Wilson

Mark Barnett (aka Barney) suggests that 3rd from the right in the top row is Mutley (aka Chris Freeman!) I think he's right ... Cheers Barney.

 

Terry Bartholomew has done a great job identifying this group. Bill Wilson has added some names also.

1   - Dave (Snakey) Miles 4ElO 

2   - Chris Ferris (Joe 90) 3ELO 

3   - Brendon O'Donoghue 4EO 

4   - Glen Cunningham AEO 

5   - Rolo Tompkins 4EO 

6   - Terry Bartholomew 1ELO 

7   - Connie Cloughton VO 

8   - Chris Freeman (Mutley) 3EO 

9   - Roger Davies 2ELO 

10 - Charlie Hill 3EO 

11 - Mick Lemm AEO 

12 - Jeff Oxnard 

13 - Alan Lampkin (Lecky) 

14 - Dave Preece

15 - Ian Jennings 

16 - Dave Ferguson? 3EO or Jady Stevens

17 - Sheldon Ainsworth J2EO 

18 - Bill Wilson AEO 

19 - Ian Brunton 

20 - Steve (The Blonde Gripper) Quinnell 

21 - Geoff Constable, Commodore CEO 

22 - Jasper Sheedy 

23 - Alan Rushforth 4EO 

24 - Tony Toledo (Cadet)

25 - John Heslop (Hank) 2EO

  

And that's Alan Conlin (aka TT) next to 3 and behind Mick Lemm. 

   

Steve Quinnell has kindly named himself, Jasper Sheedy and Ian Brunton.

  

Harbo writes; 

I believe No13 is a Lecky called Alan Lampkin, N014 could be Dave Preece and I think No16 is Jady Stevens, not Dave Ferguson.

   

Ian Brunton advises No 12 is an engineering cadet called Jeff Oxnard and believes No3 named as Brendon O'Donoghue is actually Eddie McDonnell 2/V/O.

  

Tony Toledo advises that this photo was taken in December 1976 when he was a cadet on the Arcadia and he was a young 19 year old at the time and it was taken during the 4-8 am watch which is why they all look half asleep!!

1978 Officers' Revue

Courtesy of Charlie Hill

Charlie has set us another challenge. He can name all the men but none of the ladies so let's see how good you are.  

 

Terry Bartholomew has taken up the challenge and writes;

I think the female line up is, from left to right: 

Sally Duffield (Nurse), Shirley Lion (Hostess), Eileen O'Keane (Baby Doc, deceased), Chrissie Harrison, Carol Brown (SWAP), Lisa Connell (Hostess) and Louise Hicks (now Bridle) (WAP).

 

Thanks to Jane Morgans (now Jore) for naming Louise Hicks.

 

Tim Lees kindly named Chrissie Harrison

 

We still need someone to try and name all the men!
