Oriana Engineers 1975

click on photo to enlarge

L-R Back:      

Paul Robinson, Mick Everson, Charles Oxley, Steve B, Steve Musson, Brian Richardson, Dave Grant.

Mid:       

Nick Williams, Paul Dixon, Mark Sawyer, Andy Jackson, Mike Jack, Alan Conlin, Pete Woods, Les Diffey, Geoff Heap, John Atkinson, Bill Wilson, Paul Clasby, John Speed, Harry Adamson, Barry Dover, Lou Johnson.

Sat:         

Mick Golding, Super Mac, Tom Douther, John Russell, Mike Ramsay, Dave Whitehand, Toni Mazonowicz, Bob Stuart, Glyn Dodson, Ken Worsfold, John Thow, John Hammond. Chris Freeman.

 

Archie Anderson thought the last remaining unnamed person in the above group (between TT & Les) was Roddy McConnell but thatís been challenged by Marty Elliot who claims that Roddy was and still is in the 20 stone bracket!

 

The best shot he can see of Roddy is Oriana Engineers 1978 just above John Thow, you will see the difference in size.

 

We have to name this guy Ö Iím sure Iíll know it when I hear it. 

 

Finally, thanks to Andy Ball, we have the name of the unnamed guy ... and I knew I'd know it when I heard it ... Pete Woods!

Oriana Crossing the Line Ceremony í75

click on photo to enlarge

Thereís only one person I can 100% identify and thatís Geordie John Atkinson smack in the middle next to the guy pouring the slime who may be Super Mac.

 

Dave Whitehand recalls;

If you look carefully I think youíll see that blue helmet right side is Mark Sawyer. Left hand side blue helmet I think is Arnie. The person on the table is of course Mr Oakes. How do I know? Well Dave only had 1 pair of trunks and he didnít want to get them dirty so he put mine on. Of course the fact that I now had a pair of dirty shorts was never considered. In fact I think at the time I thought it was a good idea.

Linda Tattershall remembers;

Seeing the photo of David Stott (Stottie as we called him) reminded me of how I was always trying to persuade him to whirl me round the dance floor in a quickstep. The girls used to line up! He was a fantastic dancer and I believe had been professionally trained. Unfortunately, I had not and trod on his feet a lot! He took it all in good part.

This looks like the guy we called Kangas. He was an Australian like me but he had the broadest accent. He came from Yarrawonga and all you Poms had a great time ragging him. He used to say things like "Jingies", that and his "Yarrawonga" had the boys rolling around laughing.

Les recalls;

These photos were taken during UK cruising and, as you know, was a very quiet time for us so the group was formed called "The Team". We had dinner parties in our cabins and pourouts every night in one place or the another. I cannot remember "Baby Doc's" name but he was a great chap.

We made electric cookers using a biscuit tins, red ring and a simmer stat, very effective too. Greg Sinclair believes the gentleman with the beard in this and the photo below is Norm Geehan. Maybe you could confirm or deny that Norm.

1973 Christmas in the Ocean Bar

This photo is from Charlie Hill, now Chief Technical Officer on the mv Oceana, with a very interesting challenge;

Just a small memento of Christmas past in the 'Ocean Bar' - The first one to email me with all the correct names of the ten officers in this treasured picture will win one case of Carlsberg. I think my £18.50 is pretty safe - or maybe not.

 

Unfortunately, I've only managed 1 name and that's John Russell (aka Nice John from Windsor) who's slouching with his leg over the chair arm in the very front left. Normally Nice John used to get his leg over with much prettier things ... who can ever forget Cherokee?

 

So I've started the ball rolling so let's see who can claim that prize from Charlie :)

 

Martin Chopper Harris has taken up the challenge with the names below;

L-R:       

John Russell, Charlie Hill, Colin Davis, Alan Paterson, Jerry Stangroom (Skippy), Malcolm Orr Owen, Graham Kirk (Frickley)Dave Preiss Preece, Roy Stathem, Ned Kelly, and the two guys at the back are photographers ... 

 

I think you need to start working out how you're going to deliver the case of Carlsberg Charlie! Good effort Martin 9/10.

 

Charlie Hill has kindly added the above info in pink with no mention of the beer Chopper, and writes;

As for the famous Christmas in the Ocean bar. Why famous - well it was the only time during Bob Sanderson's time as S2/E on Oriana, that the day workers were given an afternoon off and that was Christmas day 1973. We seem now to have all of the names. The two chaps standing at the back are ship's photogs and the three men sitting not in uniform are Australian passengers.

Thanks Mark, any further help to add names to the others will be appreciated.

 

Aneurin Griffith adds;

The two next to Charlie Oxley were both, I think, called Malcolm (not certain on this). After Chopper Harris is an unknown, then Derek, and Pat Foss-Smith. I also have a pic which goes with this one, of three of us not able to be there (on watch or pissed or both), so the photographer took it separately that afternoon, shows Dave Preece, Dave George and myself. I'll scan and send it later.

Andy adds;

It's the 12-4 on a run ashore in Bermuda, Oriana line voyage to Oz 1975. Funnily enough it was the pictures with you and the red garter hats in the engine room that started me remembering and this photo confirmed I wasn't a million miles out! We were all on the 12-4 on the line voyage (I remember because we couldn't go to Disneyland in LA a bit later on), we went off in Bermuda because Ian insisted he knew where we could get Watneys Red Barrel. I don't think he did as we walked around for miles looking but we eventually did get some, and the pint glass is in your hand Steve to prove it!

TT recalls;

Above is a shot of the 'Two Icons' ... Garry Stewart and the Opera House! The shots on Sydney Harbour were our first trip, arriving on the outward bound from UK, Garry had dragged me out of my Pit to see this (what you promised to be) the best harbour in the world, he was right of course!!

The girl was a friend of mine, a Canadian from Vancouver, appropriately named Sheila, who was equally thrilled with the view.

Don't remember whose cabin this was, but I'm sure we enjoyed the 'drinkies'.

Lastly in a Greek restaurant in Piraeus, when we met up with Garry's mates who were crewing a yacht around the 'Medi', a good night was had by all !!!
