An interesting picture which, to me, 'speaks' volumes.

I was wrong on the first count thinking I'd seen her in the late '50s and '60s down the West African coast. Her tragic demise says otherwise; did she, perchance, have a latter years replacement of the same name?

Back to the orals. Firstly both the gentlemen's attire shouts '1930's'. Secondly to the left are 'Bermuda' shorts being decades short of SJC and this fashion (?). [Yes I do know 'he' has long ones tucked in his socks ~ ring any bells Stephen?] Thirdly was amazed to see the supreme agility of our friend on the right. How many of us could casually catch in our left hand a 'spring', wrongly fed ashore from a port fairlead, without missing a step and continuing to have the rapt attention of our listener?

Many thanks Clive. You are, of course, 100% correct.

It looks like a good subject for a painting for Emil (blausioux)
