John Merret

Johnny and I served together as cadets on St John in 1963 and 1964.

He had joined the company in 1962 and sailed as a cadet on St Essylt.

He and I remained in touch for many years and our career paths took very similar courses. We both went on to serve as Junior Officers on Reina Del Mar and Capetown Castle.

His family originated in Ealing West London.

If he is still out there I would love to get in touch with him again.
