50 years ago: Winds of Change at Buccaneer's Inn

In the Dec. 22, 1965 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, Cayman Brac correspondent Lilian Ritch wrote: 

“Mr. And Mrs. Eric Crutchley were hosts at Barclays Bank’s Christmas Cocktail Party in the lounge and patio of the Buccaneer’s Inn on Thursday, Dec. 16. This was an occasion of mixed feelings, being on the eve of change of staff. Eric and Cindy, as they are affectionately known, are being transferred on Dec. 30 to Tortola in the Virgin Islands; Lyall Fields, who returned on Friday to Barbados, his home, made many friends in the two months that he was here. We are glad to have Tony with us again, and welcomed another visit from area manager Mr. Bernard Rothwell. 

“Guests at the Buccaneer’s Inn this week included Mr. Fred Leavold, Clerk of Works in charge of construction of Cable & Wireless (W.I.) Ltd., on his 3rd visit here in connection with the installation of their services; Mr. B.O. Julier, Manager and Engineer of Cayman Islands Government Electricity Undertaking in Grand Cayman, who came on a courtesy visit at the invitation of the District Commissioner to see the Cayman Brac Power & Light Co. Ltd.”
