I was home, in NY, for a weekend in 1957 or so, i was walking down the street when I saw a young girl, maybe late teens, walking toward me, as we got close to each other she suddenly stopped and stared at me with a look of fright and terror on her face. I kept looking at her as we passed. I wondered what she was looking at but kept on walking.
It was several minutes before I realized that she was NOT a girl but some one from my ship who worked in the ships office. No wonder the look of fear, she/he obviously recognized me too.
Back aboard ship, he was transferred a very few weeks later, I NEVER mentioned this to anyone, why make waves.
