After meeting Anita Mazur, long time helper at the Felixtowe Seafarers and Peter Dearsley, Centre Manager, we hastily made our way to obtain passes to enter the docks. Neither simple nor quick. The consequences were that our visit to meet supporters at Harwich had to be cancelled. We we, however able to visit Tor Britannia, a DFDS Ro-Ro that was loading trailers. A great experience and we were greeted warmly by Captain Petersen, officers and ratings, who so obviously knew Sr Marian as a very close friend. A tour of the vessel followed and we were treated to a an Irish style dinner (i.e. enough to feed a regiment) and celebrity treatment as well! Thank you, all on Tor Britannia and DFDS, for such warm hospitality.
