I was subjected to the 'crossing the line' (equator) ceremony on 25 May 1963. 1 was placed in a chair with my back to the swimming pool, sprayed with strawberry essence, then covered in flour. After being told that I had paid due homage to 'our leige lord, King Neptune' I was tipped backwards into the swimming pool! I was presented with my certificate which I still have to this day. Good fun, great crew.
