John on the left. Harmony St. wharf. New Orleans. 1961
A shipmate from the past has sadly died recently. John Farringdon, who rose to Master in both Bankline and later on cross channel ferries, was a shipmate when he was 2/0 on the Southbank in 1961. Among the memories there was a day and night ashore at the Mardi Gras in New Orleans. It was 1961 and we teamed up with 2 girls down from UCLA. R.I.P. John.
