Aboard RMS Queen Elizabeth : 16 Oct 64

There is a great spirit of adventure on board.

Absolutely immaculate and very rich, only 27, and due to his problems had been drunk for six weeks. He suggested we tried the first class dance. We were a bit dubious but decided to have a crack, we all looked very smart and brazenly waltzed in and no one said a word. Donald Campbell and his wife were there dancing and it was all very deluxe...
