He was incredibly lucky Jeff. The jib bounced a couple of times, then snapped off and crushed the cab as it fell.

Some of the stories would make your hair curl. Like the Kamikaze taxi drivers who drive at break-neck speed at night with no lights, (It makes them last longer) and take short-cuts the wrong way down one way streets! Or the night we were very late getting back from work due to grid-lock at one of the busiest junctions at peak traffic. The driver of an articulated lorry was half way round the roundabout when he stopped to buy cigarettes, then got involved in a conversation. It took ages to get the traffic moving again.

He is probably still running Paul. His work permit, crane operator's license, and other documentation was with the personnel department when he ran away. I doubt if he could get work anywhere without his papers.

Passat is a German four-masted steel barque launched in 1911 at the Blohm & Voss shipyard, Hamburg.

In the centre of the picture is an effigy of "Fiete" - the last sailor of the Passat, and in the background the cruise ship Boudicca.



Fiete



Decommissioned in 1957 she is now a youth hostel, venue, museum ship, and landmark moored at Travemünde.



Travemünde, Germany.

The church at Grytviken was gifted by the people of Sandefjord in Norway, and erected in 1913.



It is still in use by military and visiting RN and BAS ships.



The grave of Ernest Shackleton the explorer, in the cemetery at Gryviken. Tributes are left by visiting ships.
