Thanks Bob for the nice photo of the M V Glanely. The date you took it 13/1/1968 was the date I signed on as a young Radio Officer for a around the world voyage of a lifetime. Africa, along the Queensland Coast and back across the Pacific, Panama and back to the UK. Happy Memories !! Tks and Rgds - Peter
