I remember all the ports of call from '57 to '59 all along the Far East all the way down to Melbourne,Perth ,Darwin,Brisbane Pago Pago,Samoan Islands,then across to the East Coast to all the Carribbean Islands,GITMO,Northern Europe...then start it all over again...what a BLAST! Would be GREAT to be able to do it all over again,but A LITTLE DIFFERENT this time.

Hi Mick...being a tin can gunners mate,I recall being the one who fired the shot-line from my ship to other ships to begin the high-line transfer of fuel  lines to us to refuel at sea,and for transferring very sick sailors strapped into the "boatswain's chair"for further med.treatment,or to recieve supplies.Sometimes a helo would pick up critically ill sailor,which was much better.
