thought I would join in with yet another Nige idea.
This was my first passport as a married woman, I needed it to join my husband on a tanker (Shell)...we sailed off to Africa just after I received it...I got very ill with sea sickness and had to fly home....:-(

Aw, nice one M'lady of paint!
I thought C was into drawing buildings, how did he end up on an oil tanker?
And, did you know, if you tap in 71077345 into a calculator and turn it upside down it reads "SHELLOIL"
How cool is that?

It's great to see all these interesting young people, knowing that they grew up to be interesting adults that we know, still setting off on adventures of various kinds.
