Comment: G'day All ! I'm the Windy Hill who was on the HMAS Perth, back in 1971-2. Did the Indian Ocean Cruise ! Was actually a Steward, and Captain Percy's Steward at that ! So if he shouted at you in the Morning it was probably my fault, for coming back on board too late to get him up out of the sack, and his Breakfast was a Cigarette and a Cup of Coffee ! But Thanks to the Cooks who helped me out ! I had a habit of this happening But looking Forward to see the DVD ! Windy.

Comment: I am an ex ab R.O. from the middle 60s and I would really appreciate any info your ex cooks from my time could give me. Whilst at sea, especially when up-top the galley used to make a big churn of a drink called LIMERS. Could anybody from chefland tell me what was its civvy name,who manufactured it, is it still available, and where it can be obtained. As i remember it came in a tin and contained either powder or crystals.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Spider
