“We waited long for news”**
The long summer (such as it was) sojourn is fast coming to an end as the nights close in and autumn looms on the horizon. Having undergone the annual overhaul in a certain Belfast shipyard, the S.S. May Day is about to commence her seas trails (a series of events always clouded in an element of mystery), with a view to being in position to commence our new sailing season on this day, four weeks hence.
On the afternoon of Sunday 27 September 2015, we shall be embarking from Canary Wharf (and no, it’s not the London address of the same name, as most of you should know by now!) with Victor Hamilton as our captain of the day. Our study case and quiz is ‘The Adventure of the Three Students’ (3Stu) and we’ll be watching the first part in a new mini-season, showcasing some gems from the silent era of celluloid. More details will be found in the next issue of Mayday Mayday (no.135), which will be issued around mid month.
