Brian writes;

This was taken in 1965 at the regular "Darts and Booze up" between the Petty Officers and Leading Hands versus various Officers and Pursers Departments. My head is covering the Dart Board! I can't remember the various names, but you can pick out the various departments by their uniforms.

Willie reckons that something is not quite right when the 3rd is mintier than the 4th! That's Alan Conlin pointing the finger.

Harbo adds;

The third person is Julian Pressey, who at that time would have been J2. Elect. His boiler suit is even whiter than TT's. At a guess, I would say he wasn't doing soot blowers.

Fred Wooley's Retirement Do

Martin writes;

Fred Wooley's Farewell Spectacular was held around the Bonito Pool on Canberra. We kept him out of the way whilst all the passengers and as many as possible of the Ship's Company gathered instead of the scheduled entertainment. He pretended to be surprised when we lead him out! The picture of the Canberra was a present from the Wardroom via the office and Fred immediately spotted a mistake in the flag arrangement!

This is Simon with Sk Ali Sk Ebrahim who was the Indian deck crew ship's cook. Simon had a cooking lesson one afternoon and has passed on what sounds like a delicious authentic recipe for a Lamb or Goat curry which I intend to follow to the T and if it's anywhere near as good as Simon assures me it is I'll post it here. Curry lovers stay tuned.

John tells me the following people are in the shot but he hasn’t indicated who’s where. John Forde, Phil Nicholas, John Jameson, Tick Brown, Mike Smith, Jimmy Plowman, Martin Pickles, Peter Boyle, Baby Doc, Bert McAughtrie and Alan Hills but I think I recognise another face and that’s Mike Ramsay (aka The Ram) sitting far left in the front row.

back left:

Jady Stevens, Dave Lund, Brent van der Westhuysen (Doc) Willie Lomax, Andy Iddles (Doc)

 

Extreme right front. i.e. the guy with beard, Pete Smith (aka The General)

 

Roger Lownsborough has named the following people; Tick Brown is back row, extreme right, Mike Smith is front row, third from left, comfortably seated in his favourite armchair and within easy striking distance of the tin of Allsopps on the table - you can see his left hand on standby. Andy Iddles (Baby Doc) is standing immediately behind Mike, and looks as though he is about to pour a glass of beer onto Mike's head.

 

Kevin O’Connor has named Phil Nicholas (5th from the left) and Martin “Wilf” Pickles (10th from the left).

The fellow on the back right (last one down the gangway with glasses) is not John Barwick who was married to Helen but now passed away (bugger) but it is Adrian Gower. I sailed with them both and I'm still in contact with Adrian. He married an Aussie and is living with his family in Brisbane. Grand fellow and this will be his 1st entry on the site!

Fred Lloyd and Helen Hawkett (ships accountant) I think. Also I think that's Dave Barraclough behind.

 

Jane Morgans (now Jore) has kindly named Helen and adds; 

"...we used to call her Aitch Squared!!"

Dave Harris, Gary Stanley, Paul Barry (CRO) and kneeling Paul Simpson. Please name the engineer holding the glass at the back. I think the girls were dancers onboard, again names escape me. 

 

Murray Kirkby adds;

Gary Stanley now works at the Scheduling and Frequency Management centre at VT Communications (formerly BBC World service).

Tony recalls;

I can only name Paul Barry and Dave Barraclough. The girl was a passenger from New Zealand. 

 

Alan Mackenzie adds;

It's possible that the person named as Paul Barry maybe Marty Elliott (beard is similar) and the group of three standing in the aft corner of the deck are: Marty, Dave Barraclough and I'm pretty sure is Norman Pound. I think the officer in the woolly-pullie holding a VB could be a junior E/O, as I believe I can just see a flash of purple on his epaulette but am unable to name him.

Back:      

Vic Voller (writer), Ken Lambourne (bearded) (writer), Tim Lees (A/P), Simon West (A/P), Neal Martin (A/P now Director), Francis Stileman (married Anja).

Middle:   

Dave Traynor (Fruity), John Cardnell (SAP), Alan Hale (Purser), Tony Boxall (DP)(Deceased), Accountant on her last cruise !!!, Eddie Kilroy (A/P), Hugh Leslie (SAP), Clive Milne-Buckley (Bureau Manager).

Front:     

Anja van den Bosch, Ruth Flemming, Chris Lovatt (now Barker) (Mini-Scruff), Margaret Collins-Williams (married Peter Robinson “Robbo”), Sheena Cassells (SWAP), Mary Marshall, Jane Morgans.

Sadly... no one can identify the Accountant


Roger Lownsborough believes the WAP seated to the left of  Sheena Cassells, as we look at the photo, is Margaret Collins-Williams. 


Jane Morgans has kindly added the following information;

Back Row: 

The first ? next to Alan Hale is Tim (sorry forgotten his surname) then Tony Boxall - next to him Simon West. The small guy with the red hair and beard is Eddie Kilroy, who very sadly passed on in 2006. Neal (forgotten his surname) is behind Eddie, with Hugh Leslie next to Eddie. Behind Hugh is Francis Stileman and then Clive Milne-Buckley is at the end. 

The girls are: 

Anya (forgotten her surname - she is Dutch and I believe she married Francis Stileman), then Ruth Fleming (I flew out to Oriana with her in Jan 1977 - a great flight with lots of champagne!). Next to Ruth is "Mini" (real name Christine but forgotten her surname too! She was going out with an accountant who wasn't on that trip - his name was John Baxter I think). Next to Mini is Margaret Collins-Williams, then Shiny Sheena Cassells. Mary (again forgotten her surname) is next to her, and then I'm on the end - Jane Morgans. Mary and I started on the same day - I'm not sure she stayed the course thought!!!

 

John Gentry remembers that "Mini" is Chris Lovatt, now Chris Barker.

 

Alan Mackenzie remembers the Mary that Jane can't remember is Mary Marshall and the Neal is Neal Martin. Alan remembers that Neal left the sea in the early 80s, got married, went into the Office and ended up as something quite senior in the shore side Hotels organisation. 

 

Tim Lees writes;

I’m wrongly named as Tim Pettifer. In the front row it is Chris Lovatt (Barker) not Chrissie Laconte and Maggie Collins-Williams (married Peter Robinson “Robbo”) and not Anita Thrubron. Also this was taken in November 1976.

1980 Lord Taverners Cricket Team

Steve recalls;

I found a couple of group shots taken onboard Canberra during a Lord Taverners Cruise. Probably 1980. I remember we had to get a team together to play cricket against the taverners on a Sunday afternoon. As for our cricket team, well.... I know Freddy Lloyd is bottom left and me next to him. Alas I need guidance with the others...

 

Harbo has come good with most of the names;

click to enlarge

Harbo writes;

I've come up with a few names. Not sure if I was on this cruise but I did do a cruise with the Taverners. The Cruise Director thought it would be a good idea to use them as the entertainment one night in the Peacock Room. Stirling Moss started off by telling a joke "What's got one ear and goes round and round at 110mph? Nikki Lauda", closely followed by Willie Rushton singing (and I use that term very loosely) then it was the turn of Leslie Phillips (in photo) to tell a joke. A rather long winded one, that went something along these lines. "A young couple had been trying very hard to conceive when eventually 'Bingo', she falls pregnant. After 9 months of a fairly normal pregnancy she goes into labour and gives birth. They are very excited and ask the midwife to see their new baby. Is it a boy or a girl ? The midwife hesitates before replying "It's a head" They are shocked but determined to take their new born head home and care for it like a normal child. They take it home and arrange for a christening. They name the head Ed, take it home and place it on the mantelpiece. The years go by and they celebrate every birthday (this is were I shorten it) and then the day comes when Ed is 21. They look up at him on the mantelpiece and explain that as this is a very special occasion he can have anything he wants. Ed is so excited, can I have a car he asks. Well really Ed, what would you be doing with a car? Can I have a motor bike. C'mon Ed, be sensible, a motor bike wouldn't be much use to you. OK then, a table tennis table. No Ed, that wouldn't be suitable either. We have been down the shop and bought you something really special. Not another fucking hat!". As I said quite long winded, but it got quite a reaction from all the old dears sat in the Peacock room, and the look on the Cruise Directors face, I think he was trying to figure out how to spell resignation.

  

Jo Lindfield adds;

I am pretty sure that between Haydn Deane (Doc) and Hughie Taylor is Bob Brunyee. If it's not him he has a double. I was on that cruise and don't remember him being there!! I will get out my photo album and see if I can name any of the others.

Pourout Invitation

click to enlarge

Courtesy of Geoff Kimber

Geoff recalls;

After seeing all those party invites sent in for Oronsay, here's one from Canberra. This one was for a party held by Dave Barraclough – yes you did read that correctly - a very RARE event at that time and so this is a VERY RARE document! I am thinking of putting the original on eBay or perhaps Sotheby's.

 

Alan Richards adds the following;

I remember the day well. It was a significant birthday for Dave Barraclough, and he was shamed into having a pourout. Now Dave, being careful with his pennies, opted for a lunchtime pourout rather than the normal pre dinner affair. A lunchtime pourout, with only 2nd tickets and above invited, would make sure the 8/12 watch keepers who wanted lunch would be there for a maximum of 1 hour. The 12/4 at work, the 4/8 hopefully sleeping and the day workers having to return to duty at 1.30. 

 

However, The DJ for Canberra Radio was bribed to play every other song for Dave, and included such songs as:- pennies from heaven; money, money, money; if I where a rich man, etc.

It was suggested that the fuses were pulled on the cabin clock. The 1st electrician refused as it would take out a whole group of clocks, and would need some time to re-set but after a word from the 1st engineer it was done, and the pourout continued for an extra hour before the ruse was rumbled, (even the day workers were given dispensation from on high).

So if you should ever see the invite on eBay, my advice is bid high, this is RARE!

 

Harbo adds;

A very rare occasion indeed, not sure if it was to mark any event, but he has a major milestone coming up. He will be 65 next month (7th March - I think) time for the old bus pass to come out. He did have a pour out one lunch time on Canberra, when he was acting VO. He had all the day-workers round, I think it may have been a birthday, it took him a while to twig that Dai Thomas and myself took turns at turning the clock back 10 minutes every 5. We went back to work when the beer ran out :-)

I can identify the Deck Cadet listed as Barry ? ... I'm pretty sure it's Mike Barrie with whom I sailed in RP when he was 2/O (Compare with my picture dated 15.02.85 in Royal Princess section).

Tony recalls;

I remember we were all drinking champagne cocktails (it was Tony Dysons idea). In photo we have from left myself (Tony Clarke), Tony Dyson, Neil Sayce and cant remember the name of the WAP. 

 

Fortunately Alan Mackenzie has come up with Sue Turner being the unnamed WAP.

Roger writes;

Not sure who the guy on the left is, but I think it is Ivan Squires in the middle trying to give it a bit more choke, while on his right is Norman Pound looking on.
