Neil Burton sends us this information -

Hercules news from the past in Cargo Clan – 22nd Edition – No. 3 – Year 1978.

'Cargo Clan' was an official journal of the Cargo Clan – a division of the Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club of Hong Kong. 

Writer/photographer Saul Lockhart journeyed to Hay River, N.W.T., in April 1978, to see and cover a Pacific Western Airlines Hercules operation.

He joined the crew on Hercules No. 385, making 3 trips to Banks and Melville Islands. Captain of this Hercules aircraft was Richard (Rick) S. Soley, “the Midnight Cowboy”.

First Officer Chris Knight, “the Slug”; Second Officer Henry Pasemko, “Super Uke”; and Loadmaster Norman Geiger, “The Dangerman”.

Project managers, in Hay River during Lockhart’s stay, were Al Philpott and Garry Mathewson.
