Looking at the staff register I noticed Ron Tarrant first class smoke room barman on the Windsor 1972. Ron was on the Windsor I think since her maiden voyage. He was involved in organising the Ships Dance each voyage homeward bound on Tuesdays at the De Waal Hotel. He was also involved in setting up the sound system in the Navigators Den.
