Denholms Diary

Just been sorting out stuff and came across a 1975 Denholms diary , which had long been forgotten about . I seem to remember having lots of these but they are lost now?
Many names and addresses of people , some remembered and some unknown.
Apparently i was on the SS Siam and the Nordic Rambler then .
Anyone else still have their diaries.

Christmas Day 1974 Sea Team gave everyone on board a bottle of 5 STAR Metaxa brandy and a handsome hunting knife in a leather case with the Sea Team logo on it.

All of the Metaxa ended up as free bar stock for anyone who cared to drink it.... I just happen to like Metaxa and ginger ale so I did all right for a few month.

The knives were handed out to the officers but Captan Fuller wisely decided not to hand them to the Chinese crew. I missed out on the knife as I didd'n't join until Boxing Day. :-(
