SS Orcadia

I mind sailing on the new Orcadia when it wis fairly new an spikin tae an old Stronsay man, Davie Caithness from Newfield. I said there wis some differ on this bot fae the old Thorfin. He said," I widno ken min, fur I wis niver on hid"
In ower 30 year he hid niver been oot o' Stronsay.
Hardly believable wi' the ase o' travel noo.
