Does anyone remember going on any holidays from PS? I went on 2, one to the Norfolk Broads and another to the Rhine Valley. Both in the late 60's. We had the inevitable falling overboard in Norfolk, which also saw one of the rowing boats, which were towed behind the cruisers, crushed between cruiser and riverbank. I also seem to remember an exploding tinned pudding - very spectacular in a small galley. Travel to the Broads was by the old army 3 tonner, the floor of which was covered in mattresses. More than one passenger could be seen hanging out the tail gate suffering the effects of travel sickness!
On the German trip we managed one drink in the hotel bar, before being caught and forced to find another establishment. The trip back was on what must have been the oldest boat available and the deck was a patchwork of colours made by the different school uniforms - it must have been a school special. There was also a large amount of sea sickness as it was a pretty rough crossing.
