Good to hear from you. I'm not in the pic because it was taken on the day before sailing, and I was still on my honeymoon! Came aboard on sailing day. Not only the best ship, also the best company (CP) in the world!!
Are you still in Canada?

Hi John,
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I do remember you, John Butterworth right. I'm in Malta on holiday at the moment and can you believe it got chatting to the bloke sitting next to me he was on the Crump when we where 3rd Mate knows you very well but has lost touch. I remember he painted his cabin black and the old man went crazy. He also claims he built our bar so he must of worked with you on it, I do remember that I made a old fashioned clock for it.
