Hi there. Way back in 1952 I joined the "Maid of Orleans" at Dover and then spent rest of the season sailing between Folkestone and Boulogne as an assistant steward. Hard work, but lots of fun and I shall long remember it. Silver service then, cars winched on board,carrying baggage on a shoulder strap down the gangway to the Paris train. All those wonderful tips (kitchews"), running across the harbour late at night with contraband ciggies and booze! I am in my eighties now hoping for reincarnation and a chance to sail on the "Maid" again backwards and forwards forever!! Au revoir.
