RFA Lyness ~1967396 views... found in an old booklet by Kenneth A Shirra.

Kenneth recalls: "One thing I remember when this photograph was taken... we had little notice of it being taken and I was having trouble rounding up the catering staff to go to the flight deck for the photograph. At the last minute I arrived myself but left my PO’s cap in my cabin."

Kenneth is on the STBD side, 1 back from 8th/9th in front row - white shirt & without the cap - under the crane.
