Good picture but I think I prefer to think of her as she was when I left her in Hamburg, she was still very new and I was badly dented. Still the whole class stood the test of time well.

Last time I saw her she was in B.A. with my brother Capt Watson. I was on another ship as an apprentice and he took me out on the town.
