OLD FAVORITES - PART 6

Going back 45 years....
Gregg was sent to the UK on an exchange tour with the Royal Navy. (Some of you might remember this story, these having been shared before, but not for a long time.) When he joined what was to be his first British ship, part of his welcome aboard was to be given a special Thanksgiving meal, the captain even asking their navy cook to bake him the appropriately decorated cake.  He was very touched by this kind gesture and it remains one of the many great memories he has of his time with the Royal Navy.
Below is the menu.  Enlarge if you want a clearer view.
As often happens whenever we share any of our old photos, they jogged a few memories which we chatted about for some time.

Happy Thanksgiving 
to family and friends who are celebrating today.
