Oriana Beach Group 2

Thanks to Steve Stroud, the guy on the left who looks just like Omar Sharif, for contacting me. We know thatís Andy Jackson being buried and Alan Conlin's in the white shorts but Steve tells me the guy just behind Andyís head is JAG Lewis.

Oriana Leckies after FD Fan Fire

L-R:

Thatís definitely John Hammond, possibly Charles Oxley, The hair and mo looks like Steve Musson, possibly Geordie John Atkinson saluting, donít know whoís standing on the far right and thatís possibly Blue whoís the only one who obviously wore a mask.

 

Great shot and itís good to see the old Swan lager tins. They bring back some memories.

Oriana Cabin Pour Out

Above is Alan Conlin being his usual chivalrous self carrying a poor defenceless WAP into a pour out. I think thatís Les Diffey bending over getting his arse touched up. At the back Glyn Dodson looking rather chubby cheeked in the middle. Can someone name the WAP please?

Old Time Music Hall

Courtesy of Dave Whitehand

Iíve been inundated with people emailing me to tell me that the unknown participant is in fact Gavin Ash no less. Dave Whitehand, Ian Settle and Paul Robinson. I'm told thatís not Paul Clasby in the middle but Bunny Warren. So hereís the proper line up.

L-R:        

Mick Everson, Dave Oakes, Bunny Warren, Gavin Ash, Dave Whitehand.

 

You just had to be there Ö. !

Bunny writes;

This Old Time Musical shot on Oriana was given to me by the late Mike Robbins as a memento - he is sat at the front with his "Dr Joshua Tipple" Gladstone bag and compered the show. I was the Black Swan in the centre along with Gavin Ash, Arnie, Oakesy and Slaver. The girl at the front with the whip around her neck was Nicky Seymour one of the Hostesses (Glyn Dodson was having a bit of a BLJ with her at the time!). She had a "well endowed chest", as we all agreed! The others are various Hostesses, WAPs, APs and of course the resident band.

Tug of War

Tug of War on board the "O". Thereís big Stuart Drew with the ginger hair and beard in the background, Ken Willey (Deceased) at the front and Dave Turner looking on. (thanks to Ian Settle for supplying the names).

 

Rod Drake recalls;

Just reminiscing through some of these old photos and I remember the tug of war quite well. I think DT was beaming due to his engineers being supremely victorious, the line-up as I remember was Ken Willey, Jim Barlow, Stuart Drew, myself in Groucho glasses and Jeff Talbot as anchor. I think Jeff had the nickname 'V' body.

Leckies in Blues

Courtesy of Dave Whitehand

This is the only explanation I got from Blackfoot;

The group photo of the Oriana Electricians is a good one for those who remember Big Llewy, Martin Harris and I think the unknown is Jim ????. maybe Connors. Good luck with the rest. But, the best I can do is;

L-R:

Charles Oxley, Desmond Hughes (aka Big Llewy), Gavin Ash, Martin Harris, Tom Douther, Pete Connors (aka Jim Pete), Dave Whitehand, Roy Arnold, Bob Chambers.

 

Additional names have been supplied by Dave Oakes and Charlie Oxley. Thank you gentlemen.

Island Night 2

Courtesy of Dave Whitehand

Blackfoot's done it again and only named the very back row;

L-R:

Jim Powell (Jungle Jim), Dave Whitehand (Blackfoot), Mick Everson (Slav)

There's too many unknowns for me although I do see;

Glyn Dodson, Chris Freeman, Bunny Warren, Rosemary Walker (Deceased), Super Mac and John Thow.

  

Andrew Ball advises that the guy kneeling and drinking on the left is Keith Newman (Deck Cadet) and the guy with the glasses and two gold stripes on his left shoulder, directly in front of Mick Everson, is Ian Colquhoun the 3rd Engineer we both did the 12-4 line voyage from Soíton to Sydney with in 1975!

  

Mike Gold adds;

Also in this group are Peter Love, Richard Reubin, Gavin Ash, Roberta Pritchard, John McMullen, Chris Rynd, Louise Hicks (now Bridle) and Moira Wells.

Hong Kong Dinner Out

Andy writes;

Sometimes you can't choose who you get to go on a run ashore with, here I am well and truly lumbered! I bet you're feeling sorry for me already.

L-R 

?? (WAP), Wendy ? (WAP), Yours truly (3/E/O by then I think), Angie "The Ophthalmic Angel" ? (Nursing Sister).

The meal was in a Japanese Restaurant where for the same price you can elect to sit in a special booth and watch the chef cook your meal in front of you.

L-R

Angie ? "The Ophthalmic Angel" (Nursing sister, she usually wore quite large glasses hence the nickname, just realised she wasn't in the photos so the nickname doesn't make a lot of sense), ?? "Clyde" and Andy Ball (Lightning).
