  1. Does anyone remember when the Dunera became the original Club 18-30 cruise ship in the sixties…..actually it was for 18 to 21 year old’s. Onboard we had the Formost pop group on board to entertain us. An amazing time was had by everyone.

    • Hello Glyn

      Apologies for a late reply – thank you for your question here – I hope you can get an answer.

      Once again I say – contact from people who are “connected” to Dunera is what keeps the site interesting and lively!!

      Very best to you

      • Hello Glynn and Mike,

        My father was serving onboard the Dunera during the 1960’S as a “Maintainence Engineer (3rd Engineer)”, I remember having the “Formost” visiting our house during this time as my father had made friends with the group during this period.

        I particularly recall, my auntie, stitching “extra long shirt sleeves” into “Billy’s” (lead singer) shirts, because they were performing the “You need hands” song at the local cabaret club “Fiesta” at Stockton on Tees.

        I also have the “Formost” record album (vinyl) signed by the members of the band. I also have several other interesting “Dunera” memorabilia, including the “Dunera” heavyweight shield, which has Brittania Trident cast in brass on an Aluminium shield, that I believe was located within the “Engine Room”, photographs will be available for prospective purchasers of this memorobelia, please respond here.

        • Hello David

          Another great memory here! Thank you and it is great to see how many people are coming in these days to tell their stories!

          Thank you and I hope you get a reply.

          Bye for now

          Mike
