I remember Eggs very well (no, not like that) but i do remember her 'surprising' a deck boy in the lift on the Mairangi, he was never the same after that (probably gay now) Do you remember the Dawson sisters?


PS....Still have my Chcks bar T shirt somewhere!
Hi Graham
I did sail on the Rem with Jack Barnes, a Poe that trip was Lee Barber and the leading stewart was Billy Brothson ,,, If it was the same trip, I was supposed to go to Betty`s daughters babies christining... But got lost in some bar in Melbourne... Cheers Dave
PS Got a pic of Jack and some of the crowd around the bar on the Rem...will sort it out
