This is the Arcadia & Oriana having played football in Fiji. Some of the characters I can remember, Frank Taylor (Arcadia Laundryman) is kneeling on right with hands on shoulders of two people from the Oriana. Collum Keogh (Arcadia 3 R/O) is kneeling at the end of the row (LHS), I'm just behind Carmen, and I think it was a barman holding up the trophy.

This is Paul Graham in my cabin. The 12-4 consisted of me, Paul Graham, Ivor Young & Paul Dilks, we were very sociable and would always meet up for drinks after the watch. Have a great memory of Ivor and I lining up empty drink bottles one morning on the Sun Princess, watching the sun come up, just as we were entering port and the Chief Engineer coming out to give the pair of us a hard time, I bit into my egg sandwich and a stream of yellow yoke shot out and landed on his spotless whites! Since that day I've always had my egg sandwiches with a busted yoke!

Arcadia v Oriana football match, taken on the Bridge wing of the Arcadia as Oriana sailed showing the trophy. I can name some, Frank Taylor (Laundryman) is holding the trophy - absolute brilliant footballer married Anna the Tele-op on board. Next to him is Capt Clarke, I am to the right just in front of the Welfare Officer. The ginger haired chap, supported Bristol Rovers (I think) and between the ginger haired baker and the dark haired guy with his bow tie is one of the bar managers (who got me in to a lot of trouble with a whisky scam!). Behind Frank is Harry the laundryman (wearing glasses). I struggle to name anyone else.

Island night with me, 2 Steiners girls and a Tele-op. The Steiner girls were called Debbie and Sheila and Anna the Tele-op eventually married Frank Taylor and went to live in the Southwest somewhere.

    

The last photo from my P&O days, 12-4 News Year's Eve 1978;

L-R:

Paul Dilks, Shag, Ivor Young and David Olivant. 

 

The night went badly as the main meal was Roast Rock, Cornish game hen with Wild Rice and I think I'd had far too much to drink that night!
