  1. I was a cowboy with these men back in 1947
    is any one still alive from that ‘Easter Sunday service……….. How well I remember that morning!.
    .The sea was as smooth as glass. The humidity was not disturbed by a single whisper of breeze. Clouds of flies followed the Rock Springs even though all cattle had been left behind in Djibouti, And a ship load of left behind manure/ spent bedding had been pitched overboard, to be dispersed into the ocean via retreating tide. A two day job by a horde of barefoot locals . All unloading in mid bay where years of Italian occupation and war left no shore side dock of ocean going ships.
