William J P Pestfield

Hello Owen

I have just discovered your web site on Union Castle Line.     I am researching family history about my mother's brother - who served for many years on several ships in this company.

The only details I have are, that he was 1st class boots (if that is correct) - he was William James Peter PESTIFIELD, born 10 April,1900 in Brighton - he had a family in Southampton  (details u/k) - he died at sea believed during war (details u/k), he also entertained on board with banjo & mandolin.    I do have a small photo of him in uniform if you would like a copy?    I hope some of this information may be of some help?

I am also wondering if you can supply me with any details to fill in my family history gaps.

                         Kind regards    Alfred Jones

P.S.  I  have checked your names list.   I look forward to hearing from you.
