Photos: (c) PO David Hayes OCC members should feel proud of the fact that Jon also flew his OCC burgee just below his home club burgee for the whole voyage but he did admit to me that the one seen on his arrival (DAV2717) was not the original one we had hurriedly sent up to Carnarvon before he departed, after he had mislaid his own burgee before leaving Perth. Unfortunately that one had to be replaced somewhere in the Caribbean. Finally Jon and Port Officer, Fremantle with burgee (DAV2765) enjoying a few moments together before the real celebrations began.
