Volunteer @ Sea, Peter presents our drawing to the Captain
On May 4th 2013 we received a wonderful email from the Master of Oriana, Captain David Pembridge.
Earlier this year on March 26th 2013, our especially assigned drawing of Oriana was officially presented to the Captain on our behalf by our newest Volunteer @ Sea, Peter.
The Captain later emailed us to say thank you for our drawing and kindly attached a copy of the photograph which the ship's on board photographer took during the officially drawing presentation!
Captain David Pembridge thought our drawing was very detailed and was pleased to see we had included the new 'duck tail' into the drawing. He also informed us that we was looking for a suitable place on board Oriana to display our drawing. We were very surprised to received an email from the Captain personally.
In his latest email he was kind enough to inform us that our especially assigned drawing of Oriana is now officially displayed aboard in the Captain's Office!
Captain David Pembridge, said:
" The drawing is now in place on the bulkhead behind my desk in my office, as it was on Aurora."
" It is wonderful that you have so much interest in our ships and that you are able to create such accurate drawings of them. I am so pleased that I have now been able to be the recipient of two."
