Joined P&O 1965. First ship was the Orsova, joined Himalaya in late '66 after the strike and went to Oronsay in '67. Left the sea in '68 to chase a Dutch WAP who left me high and dry on the beach. Regrettably, I never made it back to sea and after 40 years ashore, still have great memories of a bygone era.
Been living in Virginia since '76 and am attempting my own colonization with 3 kids, 6 grandkiddies and upteen dogs.

Welcome aboard, Chris.
Plenty of P & O lads in the crew to exchange nostalgia with.
Find your way around the ship and join in.
Enjoy the trip.
