Thanks Tom. another one down.
seems strange that so many ships of one company do not have any pic's of them. The other co is LLoyd royal belge , there are 10 of their ships with no pic's.

I've had a very busy time this year, I've handed out presents given hugs to a couple of hundred kids so far,still got a few more to do,now that the schools have broke up for the holidays its a little easier I've got just two more to do and then I can clip my beard and go back to being me.I love it though,got 4 bookings already for next Christmas. I'm popular because I'm free. When I have a fair distance to travel I get given some money for petrol. I think I've eaten my weight in mince pies!!
