There'll be loads.

They'll be reading this, dying to say something but can't. Too recent.

..... which should suit a lot of us perfectly well, not necessarily just in Oman!

PS Now are any of old ships' names still to be found in the "Sultan's Visitors Book" on the rocks at Muscat ......?

Thumbs up

Union Jack,

There were still some ships names on the rock last year, cannot remember which,I'm afraid!

I have to say that it is not like going back 20 years anymore, they are really up to date and very impressive! (I preferred it 20 years ago, but I'm an old git!)

Many thanks, Bill, and I appreciate the tenor of your second paragraph only too well.
