Have pics of my Pa in a fez which must have been in Aden where those ships stopped and awful to think what now pertains.. Also are in touch with former school pals who also did the same .Read that the Chusan was known as the Happy ship apparently and I do know they enjoyed sailing on her .How I wish it was possible to get some way to Australia in such a vessel!!
