Welcome aboard from East Yorkshire, John.
We seem to have had a sudden influx of Blue Flue lads lately so there's bound to be someone you knew.
Find your way around and enjoy the trip.

Wow! Thanks for the welcome. A Yorkshireman, who went to school in the middle of the Menai Straits, wife's family connections Lancashire and Northern Ireland, We recently visited Londonderry to find family, no joy. Sailed to the Phillipinews almost sixty years ago, but not Davao. Recently returned from a trip on Tenacious, Cardiff to Barry via Waterford.

Ten years since your post - are you still there? Sailed to Canada on the Bayano in October/November 1942. Was only 10 months old, but I have my mother's recollections if they are of interest.
