    I can see this has the makings of a bestseller. I’m already hooked and awaiting Chapter Two.

  2. Paul Murray says:

    A very interesting read Jim, looking forward to the next addition.

  3. Bill McLauchlan says:

    I was interested to note your contact with Paul Tasker. I remember him well from Waiouru W/T in the late 40’s (1948 I think) where he was the MAA – a good guy.

  4. John Bullock says:

    Jim …What chapter is the story about doing a radio watch on the Endeavour in the nuddy?

  5. Chook says:

    I am in awe of your memory, or did you have a diary, I was on that trip and remember about 5 percent of the things you mentioned, and that’s being generous….. well done Jim, I have one of the copies of the last edition of Royalists newspaper or magazine or whatever you like to call it.

    • Jim Dell says:

      Thanks Chook. Everytime I write a chapter, I remember something else. Frank must be getting fed up with my corrected versions.

  6. Jan Ainsworth says:

    BZ Jim a very interesting read indeed, can’t wait for further pages. Cheers Skin Ainsworth

  7. John Bullock says:

    Didn’t you know, Jim’s other retirement role is writing the “Hansard” for our NZ parliament … all true stories!

  8. Pete Robb (one of the Twins) says:

    What great recollections and even greater reading…lots of names I can remember and signposts of your time on different ships with guys I was ships company with….I await the next Chapter.
