My son just gave me a DVD about Cuba knowing I had been there in my youth.
I was a boy seaman on my first ship and I thought it was fantastic. It made such a big
impression on me, and I still think of it to this day.
I have made up my mind I am going to go back for a visit before I die.
I realise its an old mans dream and I was only seventeen and am now in my seventies, but bugger
it I am going to give it a go.
:o

lets not go there again! that fits in with an old argument about 'swearing an oath of allegiance' on joining up - some say matelots do and some say they don't! :shock:

But when Harry joined up it was probably a groat anyway! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: they couldn't afford the full shilling back then anyway! hell the pay for an Able Seaman was £1 . 14s a MONTH in 1843! Less than the price of half a pint of beer these days! :o :o :o :o :o :roll: :roll: :roll: :ugeek:
