From west to east;
There is little change to the progress of the two developments reported on yesterday other than both being a day’s steaming further west.
Disturbance Twenty Four is now 800 miles due north of the mouth of the Amazon, westbound at 22 knots. Disturbance Twenty Five is centred a day west of the Cape Verde Islands also westbound at 22 knots. Both have little in the way of development prospects.
A shortfall in both image resources and imagination yesterday means that those of you who claimed to recognise the scruffy sailor in the middle of the vintage trio have rumbled me. I make this admission only because I have been coerced by my Group Chief Underwriting Officer who would otherwise have made an unfair accusation using this medium that I was sporting permed hair. This was taken during tank cleaning somewhere off the mouth of the Mekong River in early 1975. I would guess this to have been a Tuesday, which was usually my turn for both hat and boots. The ship, the natural perm (indeed most of the hair) and now my dignity are long gone.
