These (planned?) block numbers conflict entirely with THIS PLAN

Tal Handaqians in Athens 1966895 viewsThe guys are amazed at a Greek guard in Athens.That is assuming my memory is correct about where this was! I am sure it was during the Devonia cruise of 1966 that included Delphi, Athens, Istanbul and Rhodes. The following year was Crete, Izmir (Ephesus), Lebanon and Haifa, in Dunera. I must dig out the slides I took that year!1 commentsChris Howells
Dunera_1967.jpg
Lifeboat Drill; Dunera Cruise 19671429 viewsI am sure that this was the Dunera cruise of early 1967. I was in 3B at the time and this is a scan (took a while to get it down to 250kb!) of a picture that appeared in the Times of Malta.
I cannot name a soul, (apart from me of course! Front row,4 along with head at jaunty angle, book in hand and OMG turn ups!) So if anyone can fill in those names: go for it!
