Dont think they will Cylla. The BBC deliberately restrict viewing of I-player to residents of the UK citing copyright reasons.

The Beeb makes lots of money selling their programmes to overseas TV networks and therefore dont want to let viewers have free access via the internet!

I wouldn't mind so much, but I am a retired BBC pensioner.
The BBC America programmes are a joke, over here, Gordon Ramsey is on every time you switch on and there are adverts every 3 minutes, the repeats are so often I can quote the scripts, the one redeeming programme was the morning news, then they cut it back from two hours to an hour, drove me to drink, I think I will have another Absinthe.

Nice on Scylla

Is there any chance of rescanning it larger so that we can read it, especially the ships movements?

The squadron headed down to Gibraltar, across the Med, through the Suez Canal, across the Indian Ocean to Singapore and on to Australia and on to many more ports before eventually returning to the UK in April 1984. It seems to have been a momentous cruise and details are set out in "Safeguarding the Nation, the story of the Modern Royal Navy" pages 171-176 (with photos).

Not quite a World Cruise but a fast passage home from the Near East Crisis where the QE had served since Oct 1935. Ten days Alex to Guz is good going!!!

I know I'm being a bit cheeky, but when I was in the Merch. we had OBO's which loaded oil in the Gulf, went to the USA to discharge, then to Norfolk Virginia to load coal. We then went through the Panama Canal across the Pacific to discharge the coal in Japan, then in ballast to the Gulf. The trip around the world took 4-5 months.

Hi Stan, will be interested to see your photos. I've made a few posts around the site concerning Dad on other ships and photos of him. Most of which are on there so nothing else left. Regards Peter

Thanks for you post

Is is at all possible to rescan the 3rd Attachment as it is very difficult to read all of the place names of the cruise

Thanks a lot Terry

That's great. I thought I had seen all the cruise posts. That one slipped past me.
