Dunera Gatecrashers670 viewsSeeing Carl Olsen's pics of the Dunera trip 1962 reminded me of this photo in existence since then when a bunch of us went down to the harbour to meet the returning trip and blag ourselves on board, which worked for a while until we were rumbled and slung off unceremoniously, a good day was had by all. In the picture L-R Bryn Mead, Rod Stenton, Nigel Saunders, Bryan Sanderson, Richard Saunders and Robert "Ollie" Castell.
Photo taken by Dave "prof" Shorters on 8th March 1963.
