They look as if they have just been released from a Japanese POW camp!

The chap in the back row.... top right, I would swear is Roger Mackrell. The year is about right. I sailed with him maiden voyage LOCH LOMOND (Denholms)1975. He was Mate and I was 2/M. He left about a year later and went to Kuwait Shipping Company as master. Saw him just once after that in Kuwait about 1979.... in Kuwait. His ship was berthed near LOCH LOMOND and by this time I was the Mate.

Interesting to read the, to date, three comments on Second Officer Rodney Matthew's photo. Yes Stephen, you're right, it is Roger Mackrell. We met again, for the first time in 52 years, when I organised a visit to the SA Agulhas when she was berthed alongside HMS Belfast in the Pool of London last December. I'll find and post the South African press report of the 'occasion'.
