Yes Ray, all dressed up for the beach, I remember once going to Bondi beach in Sydney dressed like I was off to a dance, well polished shoes etc, stuck out like a sore thumb,knew it, so headed off to the pub. I sailed with Gordon Bruce on the Laganbank in 1960 when he was 2nd Mate.

No Ray, Gordon had grown up quite a bit by the time I sailed with him,( he had served two years as a prison officer at Peterhead) I reckon if anyone had of called him Blossom, he would have carried the head of them.As 3rd Mate, I got on quite well with him.
