Comments: I am very excited to find this web site. I was aboard the Gurke at Christmas Island when we crossed the equator and became a shellback on April 11 1962. I have been looking for Neil Zelinsky for many years as we grew up together and were stationed aboard the Gurke after boot camp. I would also like to hear from anyone who was aboard at the same time.
