Nigel writes;

I can name me, 3rd from the left back row, and the two lovelies, Sue Jones and Sue Huggins either side of the big wig in the front row.

Harbo adds;

Centre back is Jonathan Nicholson Booth, next to him is John Ibbotson, centre middle is Jill (Haythorhe) Wood, front left is Elaine (Grahame) Lawton, front right is Kerry Fox.

Captain's cocktail party with Jeffery Sterling, Chairman P&O Cruises. I think this was late 83 or early 84.
