    Hi Gail. I’ve so enjoyed reading all your posts and viewing your excellent photography! Yesterday the band played at the Chief Petty Officer’s Mess. I was lucky enough to run into a lonely Keith, who reminded me of your blog and instructed me on how to view them. I never dreamed it would be so simple and highly enjoyable – educational too I might add! Thanks for connecting me to your exciting trip, stay safe, and please give my love to Linda. xxx
