Hi, Hugh,

My apologies for any confusion. In March 1960 there most certainly was a young lady in the tailoring trade at Hong Kong known as Hong Kong Mary. Of course, there might well have been more than one Hong Kong Mary - ond only the warmest of good wishes are sent to any one of them.

For sure, no disrespect was intended to the lady in your most touching account of friendship rekindled. I hope that you are all well.

Very best,

Barrie

Joe Duggan

Hello Barrie and Hugh.

Warm thoughts indeed of those happy days.

I wonder if you gentlemen or any other SN member remember a lovely man who was 1st R/O on the SS IXION.around 1970.

His name was Joe Duggan as I recall and he liked a pink Gin or two before dinner. A dear man who always had a cheer you up story, and could sing the wild Colonial boy.

Succour.

1970!?!? Much too late for me; I had left for greener pastures all but twenty years prior.

I remember Jim Geddie - did a voyage with him in 1953 as a Middy - can't remember what on.
