Rob Gordon's Memories

 
click to enlarge

Robert L Gordon (on the left) worked for P&O Sales in Australia from 1961 to sometime in the 80's. After being made redundant by P&O (I know from personal experience how devastating that is) he joined Starlauro Cruises and carried on his amazing cruise sales career.

Rob is our first posthumous honorary Seadog. Born in 1938 and sadly passed away in 2007 aged 69 leaving behind a huge collection of cruising realted memorabilia which his family have kindly sent to me for us all to enjoy. This will be an on-going project as there's so much printed material to process.

 

Rob appeared on Brisbane TV many times and here is some footage of a couple of his appearances.

 

 

Here's the links to 7 more movies of Rob's.
