the two guys on the weed who lost their legs, names were lenny wiseman and dave simmonds. rang them in hospital on our return to swansea,reckoned they were well looked after,but then lost contact. saw them in port harcourt hospital the nurses had mud plastered in their hair,went back onboard and told the ol man gil barber that they could not stay there as the conditions would kill them,gil must have pulled strings as a doc and nurse came down from gib and took them back.
