It has been a very busy year once again, and I am preparing to depart on a cruise on Royal Caribbean 'Navigator of the Seas' to the Canary Islands. I'll also be back on Queen Mary 2 just before Christmas on her westbound transatlantic voyage to New York.
I hope that I may meet some of my old friends on board somewhere and sometime in the near future.
With all best wishes.

He trained in the RAF and subsequently worked for ‘The World’s Favourite’ and latterly for major Middle East and Far East airlines. He has flown almost every type of flying machine from paragliders to aerobatic and vintage aeroplanes to Boeing 747s. He has a Master’s degree in modern languages.
David Henderson, After Dinner Speaker
His talks, which are researched meticulously
from a vast memory bank of fact, anecdote
and downright lies, to ensure the correct
material for each individual audience,
are a mixture of entertainment, information
and behind the scenes knowledge.
He is one of the men to whom you may have
unwittingly entrusted your lives, and the
very fact that both you, and he, are here
this evening is sure proof that he got
things right for most of the time.
