1976 Electricians in Pago Pago

L-R:       

Bob Chambers, Mark Sawyer, Kevin Timms, Geordie John Atkinson (kneeling), Dave Whitehand.

 

Dave recalls;

The dot on Kevin’s forehead is not some sort of Indian face paint nor has he been shot with some special sort of tip-ex gun. But when you think this is a run ashore to a beach in Pago Pago, just maybe the fashion conscious Kevin deserves some sort of retribution.

1976 Engineers

Courtesy of Dave Whitehand

Dave recalls,

Here's a bit of a special photo for me as it's the only one I have with ‘Mildred’ in… I feel a story coming on...


We sailed out to Sydney one man short and had been told that a replacement called David Roper was on his way out to Sydney and would be waiting when we arrived. We arrived and whilst having our breaky in the Duty Mess, after standby, it was debated and decided that if David Roper was a big bruiser then we would call him George if not it would be Mildred. These names had been picked because at the time a comedy called George and Mildred was very popular on the TV. A very nice David Roper looked round the door and said in a very quiet voice ‘Hi, I’m the new boy’. From that day on Mildred was named. Mildred's the one wearing glasses standing behind me giving an admiring look at ‘Mick the Slav’. (Of course the one big problem is that nicknames live with you forever.)

1977 Midships Bar

Courtesy of Tony Simpson

Tony recalls;

Here's a photo taken in the Oriana Midships Bar in about 1977, I'm sad to say that I can't recall the names of the other people, I'm on the left, there are 2 WAPs, one AP and one 3rd Officer, if anybody can fill in the names this would be much appreciated.


Tony's advised me the 3rd Officer is Dave Pembridge, he met him again at a dinner party locally in West Sussex a couple of weeks ago, he's now Captain Dave Pembridge of mv Oriana.

 

Tim Lees has kindly met the challenge and come up with the following names;

The WAP on the left has the surname Ferguson but I forget her first name. The AP in the centre is Pete Brady and the WAP in the centre is Anja Van Den Bosch (now Stileman) and the WAP on the right is Frankie Gay (now Blyth).

Oriana Island Room 1978

Courtesy of Don Cole

This photo was taken in 1978 and I think there’s only one guy I recognise and that’s Mick Everson 3rd from the right back row. Don Cole tells me he’s the one 2nd from the right back row next to Mick. Groucho tells me the “thumbs up” guy at the back is Peter Bennett who actually went out with Groucho’s ex wife before he did. He also tells me the guy kneeling on the left is Pat Gallagher (aka Pat the Hat) and the young guy at the other end of that row is an ex-cadet called Dave. Thanks Groucho. Further information from Don reveals:

L-R Back:      

Gary Woods (aka Trigger), Tommy Hunter, Peter Bennett, Mick Everson, Don Cole and the last we don’t know.
