Some smiling faces from a quarter of a century ago. I'll leave you to ponder the names but I'll put you out of your misery shortly.

Cheers - Alan

Princess

Hello Alan,
As nobody seems to have replied, thought I'd better give it a go.
Back Row, left to right.
Dixie Dean, R/O, Alan Lynch, R/O, Angie Eddleston, Lt.Cmdr. David Mansel Pope, RD, RNR, Harry Jefferson, Malcomb ?.
Front Row, left to right.
Ronnie Bolton, Dick Sturge, Larry Portet, Dr.Alan Kirwin, Alan Marsden.
I was wandering where all the engineers where. Then I realized that as usual, they where probably all working.
Cheers. Bill. (*)

Hi there Bill - great to hear from you - at least there are two of us left...!

Next to Angie is Arthur Myers - medical orderly - and at the end of the back row is Malcolm Scanlon. Second from left on the back - I can't remember either - I'll refer to the archives and get back to you. Hope you are well?

Cheers - Alan

Cruisemuscle - I was on Cunard Princess from the beginning until '81 as relieving Chief R/O. Haven't heard of Ronnie Bolton for a while. Last I heard was that he was Master somewhere (he was still 1st Off, maybe Chief Off) at the time that I left. Let me know if you track him down....

Cheers

HI Allen

I have just joined.

I was on the Princess in the 80’s as 4th Engineer. A fellow engineer was Pete Hacking.

Regards

Hi Alan,

I think I was the person third from the left in the back row. I was temporary replacement 2/O from the cargo division.

I was then transferred to the QE2 for a good few years.

I am now Master with Holland America Line on the Noordam.

The days of lunchtime discussions / sessions in the cabins aft of the Bridge are long gone!

Regards,
John Scott.

Harry Jefferson - radio officer
Malcolm Scanlan - 1st Officer (moved to Canada)

Ron Bolton - Chief Officer (retired)

Derek,

Last I heard of Harry Jefferson was 20 years ago and he was reported to be living in Spain but I can't confirm.

Salaams,

Hi all,

I never knew so many had survived :)

Yes, it's quite clear where the engineering department were at the time of the picture...

Happy days indeed, from what I can recall through the beer goggles.

Quick memory of Captain Portet:

I was briefly on the bridge of the Princess as he was lining up to enter San Juan dry-dock. He looked slightly concerned, and turned to one of the deck officers: "How wide did they say it was?"

I made my excuses and left...

All the best,
Steve
