Anyone still lurking on this thread?

And specifically, has anyone heard from David or Jackie Cameron - they were living in Tortola last I knew (Dixie said above they had retired) so I wondered if they were OK after Irma.

I suspect you have the name confused - as I recall it was Maurice Tate and the Captain was Laurence Portet.

Don't know the whereabouts of Pam, but her partner in crime, Vicky, is alive and well and lurking nearby

Hello All. this is a well aged thread indeed. Few may recall me as a somewhat fleeting presence as 2nd RO on the Princess 1981/82. (C6CG). This was my first real job since college and after a difficult start I went on to serve on the Countess and the QE2. Between that I served on the MV Saxonia and emerged a wiser man indeed. I recall all of the faces and most of the names however sadly some if not many are in name only. I assumed that was Eric Bainger (RO) left of middle however the threads indicate otherwise. Harry Jefferson (RO) retired to live in Spain in the 80's. I met with him (Spain) around 1995 and within a later contact he indicated an intention to move to the USA and live with his daughter after his wife had passed away. I am indebted to Harry for his support in the early days and retain memories of the best times of my life there.
