Aft PO’s Canterbury

Spot the Communicators?  What Year?  Click on image to enlarge.

POEW Martin Evans in the middle by the table.  With careful deduction the photo would have been taken between 1976 and 1980 due to khaki dress still being worn.  Also Marty was a Killick on Otago in 1976.  I think sitting on the rear bunk 2nd from left maybe Jim Bettridge.

    It appears that the PO in the middle could be Brian Anderson (Andy) RIP..
    He was a chef. Last time caught up with him was when Canterbury passed through Singas on her
    maiden voyage from UK to NZ. I was living in Singas at the time.

    This photo would have been taken after 1976 as Marty was a killick on Otago that year.

    Jim Bettridge was also a killick on Otago in 76. This gentleman looks a bit fuller in the face than Jim.
