Me. Usually I was covered in oil and filth.

A rare pic indeed. Not often I was as clean as this! Viking Piper, 1977. Helmet belongs to George Champos. I don't look a bit like this now. Old, worn out and getting very forgetful. Ruined lungs and crippled with arthritis.

I remember that face! I went out to Claymore in 1976 with Malcolm and Allan for inst pipe fitting. I will remember you sat on the deck repairing temps - covered in oil! I am sorry to hear your not keeping too well - your a legend in the north sea. I am 56 now and still between the shafts, in India building a metro system in chennai. Do you remember a guy called eddie Groch? Take care....
