Ron Buninga, the son of Captain Buninga (who was in charge of the Radio London ship, mv Galaxy), whom we met at the USS Density Reunion in 2003, told us he had a surprise gift for us, connected to the ship. What else, apart from the bell could he possibly have?! (See Density Reunion 2003)
Imagine our surprise when the postman delivered the original rubber stamp used on the mv Galaxy!
Strange how you can look for one item and don't notice the ones you have been reaching over so many times without noticing them!
I knew I had the "mv Galaxy" stamp somewhere, and a bit of thinking and closing my eyes, it had to be in the drawer of my desk!
Mary and Chris are so very grateful you found it, Ron. Although the rubber letters, which have remained unused for so long, haven't yet fully 'recovered', despite the lubrication of ink, we hope it may come back to life. In any case, we will use it to stamp letters to friends, as it is really something so very special.Thank you Ron, for a "Wonderful" present!
