Ian Anderson's Mi Amigo photo album continued.

Ian Anderson was on board the mv Mi Amigo in October 1973 when the aerial mast collapsed. He says “After the triangular mast on the Mi Amigo came off the insulators on 18th October 1973, putting Radio Atlantis and Radio Seagull off the air, there was little for the broadcasting team to do except hang out until finally evacuated. This is what we did on a ship that was running out of food, fresh water and fuel.”
These are Ian's pictures, taken with his Ilford Sportsman camera. As he and his colleagues were at a loose end, with no programmes to present, he describes the set of photos as “What We Did On Our Holidays”. The captions below are Ian's own words.
