Hi All,

Spent quite a long time within sight of Kharg at the back end of 1974 on the Brown and Root barge L E Minor, fitting risers and laying pipe. I'd been sent out as a tender by Taylor Diving and Salvage to replace a tender/diver who had floated to the surface dead from an embolism. It didn't look to be a very hospitable place, it was bitterly cold at night and the death of this poor bloke (a red indian chief, it seemed) put a real damper on the whole experience...
