From Mitch Spike, Palm Springs (CA) Police Dept.

Yes, we were at it again.  My wife and I were assigned to the Celebrity Constellation ship in May (2004) for a trip through Northern Europe.  We had a wonderful tour of England, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Estonia, and Germany.  We arrived a day early and met up with Dick Barton (Section I).  Dick showed us the most incredible hospitality as he met us at the airport, allowed us to stay at his home in Eastbourne, then drove us the next day to our debarkation in Dover, England.

A sincere THANK YOU to Dick, his wife Jane, daughter Rachel, and son Andrew for sharing your home with us.
