    Sorry to read that Albie Cross has passed on – I remember him from his time at Irirangi (or was it Waiouru W/T?). I have enjoyed his previous frequent additions and explanations on this web site as there don’t seem to be too many of our generation still around. Bill McLauchlan, ex L/Tel NZ11400

      You are so right Bill. I remember you at Waiouru W/T those days. We are getting a bit long in the tooth now, but enjoying life whilst we can.Albie was great mate of mine on the Bellona in 1949, so will miss him. Regards – Tex Spence ex L/Tel.

    Maureen Warring was 2nd Officer in Wakefield whilst I was there. I liked her and she was extremely kind to me as I was (then) rather naïve and she seemed to take special interest in my wellbeing. Farewell Ma-am.
