Oh good, I thought it was only me that paid-off a ship in Goa in mid summer, wearing a three piece suit and with furled umbrella.

Stuart ;
It was expected of us wasnt it ? .
Apologise for the white socks ! they were the only clean ones I had ; all the rest having been designated to engine room duty and not fit for a "Sahib " ashore .
The evenings in Kandy could be quite cool ; it was great to get off the ship ( Maipura had no A/C or air cooling .
