Glacier Bay - Collecting Ice 1976

Sun Princess 1976, collecting ice in Glacier Bay. On the left is Jerry Glen (3E), just behind him is David Dene (AP) aka 'Monocle Man', then to the right, with beard, is Nigel Hastings (3E), then myself (AE). No idea about the rest.

 

Harbo has kindly provided the following information;

The AP aka Monocle Man, I can't remember his name at the moment, think it was David something, but when he wore the monocle, he was a dead ringer for Wilfred Hyde White. The chap at the back (orange jacket) is Cliff Perry, Cruise Director and the lovely young lady was a Steiner lass who's name also escapes me. The guy front right next to Gerry was a Coxswain. I'll work on the blanks.

Skagway Lower Lake BBQ Group 1987

Courtesy of Iain Reeves

Iain recalls;

This was taken at the lower lake. Jungle Jim Powell cooking, Bill Witts, Jon Tully, Chris Lawton, me (with Oriana sweatshirt), Phil Pickford, Phil's wife (I think), Tim and Carol Brown. Jim was just staring his motor time as 8-12 3EO with Bill (4EO) and Jon (AEO) as his support. Chris (3EO) and I (4EO) were the 4-8 (we had gone up the hill first to get the beer chilling in the lake). I think Phil was Ch Off and I can't remember if Tim (3O) or Carol (SAP) was signed on. I remember they didn't get to sail together much, or get leave at similar times, so would travel as spouses during their respective leave periods.

The A Team (Yellow) and B Team (Blue) - Sun Princess football teams from 1976. The "A" team played a hotel team form Puerto Vallarta on a regular basis. The pictures were taken because of a challenge set by the "B" team. The "B" team were beaten comprehensively! I hope these pictures get the grey cells working as there a lot of spaces to fill in. Over to you Harbo!

Fun Run in Skagway

Courtesy of Bob Johnston

Bob writes;

This was taken on Sun Princess in 1978 on Alaska Cruising. See if anyone can name these guys as I was there only for a month on relief before finishing with the sea. All I remember is I think the Colonel got me roped into this race and I know I came last!!! (Thought I was fit). It was a lot of fun and the Colonel has this on video. Alaskan cruising was a lot of fun I worked in the disco or night club but can't remember the name of the bar, see if anyone can remember it. I think the young bell boy that I knew from Oriana came first.

  

Harbo replies;

The disco or nightclub on the old Sun was called the Starlight. Occasionally they might have a disco in the bar below which was "The Union Jack Bar" hamburger / Pool Bar. In the photo of the fun run (which I participated in quite a few, wearing a Tutu ) is not too clear, but I believe it's Paul Brougham on the extreme right in the Mess Jacket. Possibly Zak Coombes 3rd from left, but open to offers. The fun run was generally through the town and back again, but there was also the Skagway scamper, which was a race up to the lower lake and back again. Not so much fun :-(

  

John Trembling adds;

Second from the left in the white P&O t shirt and white shorts is Dave Bonnet (Bon Bon) who is deceased but I don't have any details or dates and I think the girl kneeling down with 11 on her t shirt is possibly Jan Bacon who I think is still at sea.

  

John Colonel Kling adds;

Kneeling is Noel Hogan, I was his best man when he got married to Tinker a casino girl on the Sun, they got married on St Patrick's Day in Las Vegas in a wedding parlour. I should write a story about that as Noel got really drunk before the wedding but I digress. Next to Dave Bonnet (Bon Bon) is Brendan Cole who went on to work on P&O Ferries. Next to Brendan is Colin Doughty who is responsible for me getting married to an American and leaving the sea. Next to Colin is someone whose name I forget but we were barmen together. Next to him is John Russell.

  

John Rennie adds;

Far right is Paul Brougham then me, John Rennie (aka JR) then 4/E (also ran) then the "Two Starlight Sisters" Barmen from the Starlight - one holding the sign but I can't remember their names. At the back, the very tall guy with the beard is Martin Coombes, whose racing pseudonym was "The Racing Rabbi".
