THE DRESS BLUES WERE WORN BECAUSE LOUIS, ??, AND I WERE ON A DAY TRIP TO BLUFF, NEW ZEALAND WITH THE
REVEREND MR. BLACK. HE TOOK US TO HIS TOWN (BLUFF) AND GAVE US A GREAT TOUR INCLUDING THE WORLDS LARGEST BEEF EXPORT LOADING DOCKS IN THE WORLD (AT THAT TIME). WE ENDED UP AT THIS SIGN AND HE TOOK
OUR PICTURE. THANK YOU FOR POSTING MY PICTURES, I WISH I COULD REMEMBER THE NAMES OF THE SAILORS I TOOK PICTURES OF, MAYBE YOU COULD PUT A FEELER OUT AND SOMEONE WOULD RESPOND? THANKS AGAIN, LEE JENKINS
