Title: Now, For a Look Back – Way Back

I need stories from the crew of activities on board or on shore.  There were some interesting times.  Remember the poker games aboard after a limited pay.  They lasted two days as I recall.  The last day the pots were pretty large and the big stakes games were in the main mess.  Rank  meant nothing, money was everything – for 48 hours.


Remember the street cars in Recifi, the trains in Bermuda, shore patrol in Algiers?  Club 42 in Malta?
