Hi Jenxy,

I would guess it is the late 80s. There are other pics that show the Bosun's family too, and one or two other pictres of the lads. Mr G passed flash drive on to me with lots of Nostalgis shots and i will post many of them when i can.

Hi Clanline,
One only received a can of Tennents if one donned a dress in the bar. I guess the gift is the decanter on the bar, i was not present at the time. A good pic though with a mix of people from all decks of the ship.
