Today we had special guests onboard the Ross revenge,  Gudmundur Asgeirson, first mate aboard the ship when she was Freyr operating out of Iceland, and Hilmar Snorrason. Hilmar has visited before when she was in Tilbury. This was the first time though that Gudmunder has seen her since she left Iceland to join the Ross Fleet in 1963.
