on the Norland Wendy was also very well known, though I hasten to add that I personally can't remember actually meeting he, she, it. Typically, I was too deeply involved with my work to go to 'parties'. And my still being 'old fashioned' I can laugh at them and their antics but think that sexuality should be behind closed doors and not exhibited. Nevertheless, the crew on the Norland were in as much danger as the rest of us and faced their 'moment of truth' as well as any Para. They were a credit to their nation, who can ask for more ?
Talking about Hull, the son of an old comrade of mine comes from there. Karl Bushby
has been walking around the world for almost 20 years. He always picks up where he last stopped and so it is the longest continuous walk ever undertaken. From the outset he has never used any form of transport. This means that if a ferry crosses a river he swims across next to it. Crossing from the USA to Russia he had to swim from floating ice block to floating ice block across the Bering Strait, something that very few have ever done. There are quite a few video's on you tube showing just how unbelievably tough his journey is.
