To Orkney, on a Tall Ship

This just in from David… The Tall Ship is a Dutch ship called the Gulden Leeuw (Golden Lion). There is a photo of me with the Captain. You can see a Churchill Barricade in one of the pictures. This and others were built by Italian prisoners of war to keep the Germans out of Scapa Flow. I’ve included some blurb on that. There is a picture one of the others took, still to come, of me helming the ship! The Captain was keeping an eye on us and then buggered off, leaving yours truly in charge and awaiting a change of trousers!!
