   True Gary very true ! but to be honest my weakness in the pusser was the Duff !!!
 Jam rolly- poly-spotted dick-I even liked the lumpy custard those "chefs"dished up.
   My wife was a bit disturbed to hear from an ex shipmate of mine that at one time I was known as "two duffs Mclellan" very rude, but unfortunatly very true. ;D
     Oh the memories!

Well you may have gone to Japan 64-65 but I had flown off home by then and got married, Dave the oracle (thats Captain Dave to us ) will no doubt tell you for sure though, but if you want real detail it may cost you rum !!

 ??? Just read the latest Japan thread ! Paula Tiomen-Kobe- then Hong kong, I might have volunteered to stay on board if I had known those runs were coming up. Second thoughts though my future mother-in law would probably have flow out and got me, my wedding had been canceled twice, and she was deeply suspicious I suspect.  :-\

Yep Kobe was the one we did 64/65 remember those slot machine places anyone with the ball bearings?
What a bloody row ended up with baskets of the things gave them away to locals who could exchange
them for goodies.Own up who had the full issue Japanese bath for 3000 yen,cold water,hot water,cold
water,hot water with lovely soapy rubdowns in between,err better stop now :-X
And also when we were tying up the local side party using those two way radios like todays cell phones
the like of which I hadn't seen before,amazing.One run ashore put porcelean geisha girl doll in pocket
when Mama San wasn't looking,felt guilty as hell and took it back next night.
getting back to the scran in my case in the loft I have genuine China Fleet Club menu from Hong Kong
bet you think I'm a proper tea leaf don't you but I can dream back now :)
