On Stanley Park's Flying Bridge
On Stanley Park's Flying Bridge

David McMillan (centre) poses aboard the SS Stanley Park's open "flying bridge" with officer cadets Doug MacPherson (left) and Bob Pethick (right).

In this photograph taken in the South Atlantic, all three wear short-sleeved tropical uniforms of tan cotton. The flying bridge, an open area for commanding the ship in fair weather or at times when good visibility is necessary, includes the equipment necessary for controlling and navigating the ship. Visible in the background are the binnacle (centre), which houses the ship's magnetic compass, and a repeater (right), which displays information from a centrally mounted gyroscopic compass, or gyrocompass.
