Have we found a secret BF thread agent, he who is prepared to push our blood pressures higher and higher. Is there a secret plot to prolong threads beyond their useful lives - sensational news or just a ploy to deceive, we await further revelations (EEK)

Relax Santos...

I put it down to the Cunard Shipping Company. Spending all those years going backwards and forwards across the big pond must make you lose all sense of time!!!

Sorry Sparkie(Jester)

reminds me of an occasion between melbourne and sydney in the mid 1970s when , sailing on an a.c.t. box boat, we sighted Royal Yacht Britannia closing on us at a rapid rate of knots.
i knew she was in the region as the Queen was making a state visit to Australia and i identified her long before the o.o.w. (the mate) did.
i alerted the o.m. who rapidly made his way to the bridge, and ordered a cadet to make the "dip".

unfortunately............................

the strong wind conditions caused him to foul the flag halyard, so i made it up to the "monkey island" quick smart, and helped him free the Red Duster which took just enough time to see the Britannia on our starboard quarter, and steaming towards melbourne at a range of about 4 cables.

our "less than seamanlike" dip was not returned, which was fair enough i suppose....... but our captain, a certain Captain Lionel (Ginger) Brown was unable to raise her on channel 16 v.h.f. either, despite repeated calls.

this caused Ginger to pour a flood of sailor like invective into the v.h.f. handset, leaving the o.o.w. of the Britannia in little doubt of his opinion of the provenance of his fathers identity.
no one who ever knew Captain Brown would doubt his ability to do so.....:)


i remember the escort ship to Britannia was h.m.a.s. vampire. she sailed, of course, ahead of her charge, and must have raised us on v.h.f......as i remember her identity.
sadly, i dont suppose she returned our "dip" either, as by the time she was on our starboard side, myself and the poor cadet were hanging off the halyard like a couple of puppets.................:)


happy memories.......... which came to mind over 25 years later when i boarded Britannia in Leith, her now, home port.

happy memories indeed........:)
