Couple of pictures of the officers on the Merkara in 1972. Captain David Harridine, RNR, is in one of the shots with the 5th Eng (Paul Wilkinson?) and the sparky - the other is of the Chief Engineer but I can't recall who the other 2 are.

Sailed with Capt. Harradine on his retirement voyage in Resolution Bay 1990, sadly he died in October 2008.

Sad to hear he died, we sailed with him as well. Also sailed on the Merkara in 1974
