SS Dunera - Baltic Cruise 1963
Dr Brian Turner from Bridgend, Wales recalls a trip on the British India ship, Dunera, sister ship to Nevasa and Uganda.
As promised, a brief "cv".
After A levels I had a sort of "gap year". I worked for a good part of it as a porter in Queen Alexandre Hospital, Cosham, and then started in The Welsh National School of Medicine, Cardiff in 1964. After qualifying in 1969, I did the obligatory round of junior hospital jobs, before becoming a GP in 1974, here in Bridgend.
I retired from practice in 1997, then went back to university in Cardiff to do a Master's degree in Law, and then a postgraduate qualification in Occupational Medicine. Then followed a few years of doing some private sessions in Occupational Medicine, and Industrial Injuries Compensation etc., before I finally retired completely in 2008.
Along the way I married, Christine, we had 2 sons, and now have 4 grandchildren
Now we just travel and enjoy the grandchildren!
I've attached a few 'photos from the Dunera Baltic trip. Many of the faces are familiar, but most of their names are lost in the dim recesses of my rapidly shrinking brain!
