I was second electrician on NR Crump, on maiden voyage from Japan to Vancouver Island and UK. Probably on the ship when that pic. was taken. First electrician was Tony Thompson, now unfortunately no longer with us.

Ken,
Good to hear from you. I'm not in the pic because it was taken on the day before sailing, and I was still on my honeymoon! Came aboard on sailing day. Not only the best ship, also the best company (CP) in the world!!
Are you still in Canada?
Regards,
Les

Thought the readers would like to see some pics of your happy event in Hiroshima.
Les is the serious looking one in the formal suit. Kyoko ( hope I remembered her name OK) was the bride. Still together , I think.

I'm on the left in the group picture

Still in Canada Regards
Ken

Ken,
Yes, still together, 41 years now. 3 grown up children and 5 Grandchildren. Living a life of luxury? in a super cottage on the edge of the Black Mountains about 20 miles north of Swansea. By the way the pic. on the right is wife's sister Yoko!
Sadly Tony (Jimmy) Cusack front row left is no longer with us. He was my best man. Also Tony Thompson at the back 3rd from right he was 1st lecky, I was his junior.

Last edited by Les Gibson; 8th January 2011 at 23:28.. Reason: Spelling of 'together' and add Tony Thompson

Hi John,
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I do remember you, John Butterworth right. I'm in Malta on holiday at the moment and can you believe it got chatting to the bloke sitting next to me he was on the Crump when we where 3rd Mate knows you very well but has lost touch. I remember he painted his cabin black and the old man went crazy. He also claims he built our bar so he must of worked with you on it, I do remember that I made a old fashioned clock for it.
