It's a pineapple, but not as we know it Margaret.

Sandra, (on the left) extra 2/E's wife from Tayport, Fife, and Mrs Gordy, at Freetown, Sierra Leone, 1974 on one of Texaco UK's Doxfords.
Port 'Officials' almost cleared out our stores, but we got as much pineapple as we wanted. After Port Harcourt, and Monrovia we arrived in Bridgeport Conneticut with only flour and cheese left. As many cheese rolls as you could eat!

Bill, you're right.
A really nice couple.
Davy arrived on the ship with no boilersuits, and dug one up that must have belong to someone 6'6"
Davie (Being about 5'4" ) was walking down the flying bridge when Isobel, Hairy Andersons wife shouted to him, "there's a guy come along here and he's got nae legs"
