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?
