Asiafreighter 1974

Front left , relieving mate - Davie Thompson.
At the bar left , Ch. engineers Dick Stevenette (L)
and Ian Ross (R). Difference between the two was
like night and day.
Me at the bar right ,with hand on chin , still trying to
figure out why I let myself get roped into previous
photo.

John,
The Mate is Dennis Thompson from somewhere outside Aberdeen. (Thumb)
Is the big bearded guy at the bar Howard (?) the ECO? (?HUH)

Ian, as you say - a true gent, started the fashion for wearing clogs (Scandinavian type) and before long everyone was clomping around the accommodation! (==D)
