  Three engineers in engine room

Fremantle,    Christmas Day  1963.
L to R.     Tony the Leckie from Swansea,  Deck App. visiting from Great City,  Possibly the same,  Eric Poingdestre 2/E,  Bert Lester C/E,  Colin Gateshill 4/E.

We got Christmas in port because the Aussie stevedores went on strike because they wanted to rebuild the Calcutta built  shifting boards and RSL naturally
would not agree. I think we got something like an extra week in Fremantle. Thank you very much. Copyright © Colin Gateshill.
