Fishing at sea
Hugh
11/07/08, Atlantic

This was some of our first catches at sea........every morning I would have to walk around the deck to pick up all the dead flying fish that comes aboard during the night. Some people actually fry them up but they were too boney for us, so we just threw them back overboard. This was our only type catches between Luderitz and St Helena.

Just Nuisance
10/02/08, Simonstown-Cape Town

Able Seaman Just Nuisance, R.N.
Great Dane - Great Friend "Just Nuisance", as the dog was to become known by, was by all accounts born on Thursday, 1st April 1937 in Rondebosch, a suburb in the south peninsula of Cape Town.
At an early age, the pup was sold to a Benjamin Chaney who moved to Simon's Town to run the United Services Institute (USI). The USI was frequented mainly by the Royal Navy sailors - The Royal Navy at that time being in charge of the Simon's Town Naval Base. This Great Dane soon grew to be a massive dog and it was here in Simon's Town that he was to become a legend.
