An old photo, the young bloke is Doug from Scotland and Deck Boy at the time. The old AB whose name I cannot remember may be well known in a particular group.
Does anyone know him, know where they are, and what they are on ???

Thanks Dave, that didn't last long,
South East Pylon, Opera House before the Sails went up. I think March 63.
The Pylon lookout closed a very long time ago and only this century they started guided walks up the curved section of the bridge to the flag staff at $100 plus per head.
The wind gets so strong up there sometimes that when you get down you might be able to present them with someones head and get your $100 plus back.
Local rules state that because you are resident you may not collect the prize!
Plus you have been no help whatsoever with the old AB.
Is there anyone out there who knows him???

I believe the old fellow had been with the RFA for quite some time, I used the term AB speaking generally, he my well have had a higher deck rating which he no doubt richly deserved.
Cheers
