      Your archive links and image appears not to be available, Tim :(

        Thanks for letting me know, David! What a shame. Was able to (and did) read this Med Cruise Book at a university research library today, but apparently can’t link it up here. Will try again today or over weekend.

        In the meantime, one can get a glimpse at the page documenting Errol’s dining on-board the Cotten at Palma at the link below. … One may need a magnifying glass, though!…

        BTW, David, it appears some of these sailors may still be here with us and quite active with the history of this 1955 Med Cruise. … Could be cool to see what they remember about Errol.

            Can’t blame ya’, twinarchers. Looks like the Navy classified it Top Secret after I found and read it yesterday. Perhaps there’s evidence in there that Errol was working on starting the Viet Nam War. I’ll have to check Chuckie Higham’s Liography.

      Could it be that Errol is taking a selfie?

        You … You …You’re a funny guy, shangheinz


        P.S. If Errol Leslie invented it, than we need to rename it an “elfie”
