Harbo writes;

I just met up again with Jerry Tweddle and John Ward in Whistler. Jerry emailed to say they were coming out from the UK for a ski and John Ward and his wife Eveliene were flying up from Sydney, so we arranged to meet up at the weekend to do a bit of skiing and sink a few sherbets. There were two other ex-seadogs present, my wife Sarah and Jerry's wife Janet. Last time we all got together (we think) was at Bruce Waller's retirement 16 yrs ago but like a lot of these reunions, it was like just picking up where we left off. A good time was had by all (even if I did bugger up my knee skiing).

Noticeably absent is the 3" of blubber from my "belly". Garry & Di provided a superb feast of fresh tiger prawns, steak, unbelievable lamb chops and succulent chicken kebabs and the beer and wine flowed freely. A great Sunday afternoon indeed, made even more special when Garry presented me with a gift, a priceless Oriana memorabilia item which can be seen here.

Nick Carlton and Richard Regan

Richard writes;

Jo-Anne and I took our first cruise in Dec last year. My first time on a cruise ship since paying off from Oriana in 1976.

The cruise was on Sapphire Princess with Nick Carlton as Master. Nick and I made our first trip together in Strathardle in Jan 1971 and also sailed together in Oriana and Uganda. As I told him when we made the booking, the last time we sailed together we had to share a cabin. He reassured me it would not be necessary this time. We had a great time. And it brought back lots of memories.

Here are some of pictures of two (not so) old seadogs.

Charles writes;

We ventured down to Brighton just after Christmas to see some of the old gang. Attached are four pictures which we took with Liz's camera ... I took 2 more but sorry to say they seem to have been deleted. Apologies to those concerned as we're missing some of T.B., Ken Worsfold and Bob Chambers. As you can see Mick Everson was there, John McMullen and Ginger Jon too (no longer ginger), Andy, Groucho and Paul with his son, wife Gill and her sister.

It was good to catch up but sobering to see how we're all aging ... lots of grey heads.


Let's hope some others there can fill in the gaps.

A great reunion of old Oriana Engineers was held in Canberra on 17 May 2016.

The three 4th Engineers and one first trip Junior Engineer, all from the Oriana Fire trip in August 1970 all met in Canberra after 46 Years. Dave Betts (S4E0), Steve Wedd (4EO), Mark Gardiner (4EO) & Greg Sinclair (JEO). This was the first time any of us had met again with Mark Gardiner and the first time we'd all been together since 1970. It was my first trip on Oriana and Steve Wedd left at the end of that trip.

Dave Betts lives near Southampton UK, Mark Gardiner in Perth WA, Steve Wedd in Canberra and I'm in Sydney, NSW.

We had a wonderful day at Tilleys in Canberra reminiscing and catching up with eachother. We went fairly easy on the beers and really enjoyed the company of old mates..

We were joined by my wife, Marianne, whom I met on Himalaya cruise 521 Sydney-Pago Pago in November 1972 and Goldie’s partner Lynda who’s been an avid P&O mainline voyager to Australia and cruiser since the 60’s..

A wonderful occasion and also the chance to meet up with some old friends.

There was of course Dai himself along with Bill McCandless. The chap on the left is Dean Selhay, who was the York Air Conditioning engineer who spent a lot of time on the 3 ships Princess had in those days. A real good guy and a pleasure to see him after all these years.
