United Shooting

I heard that story with the embelishment that after being shot he was still heard to be muttering "they won`t shoot you lads they have to buy their own bullets" Good pain killer San Miguel...I speak with years of experience with that particular brew.
The last time I saw Georgie he was Master of a tug in Dubai creek.I think it was a Gulf Coast Marine one but for the life of me I cannot remember the name.

Regards Jim
