My father, AB James Alexander Ritchie (Alex) Onboard RFA Wave Prince 1962-63, shared a cabin with QM Fred Cains, good friend of David R Gustard of Seaham, lost contact with David a year or two ago. sadly my father passed away on the 3rd of May 2020
RFA Wave Prince being berthed in Southampton (?), possibly at the first stage of laying up at the end of her service.
It appears she has had the full modernisation and was extensively used in the Cod Wars and escorting the Royal Yacht, before being scrapped in 1971.

I don't remember where I took this photo, is it possible for anyone to pick the place or the cargo ship, a long shot I realise but then some guys on other threads
