John Henry Brooking Smith

I have just read about your project in the current issue of Family Tree magazine.

My late father, John Henry Brooking SMITH, did 5 voyages on the Edinburgh Castle 1926/7.  His younger brother died February 1928 and his mother would not allow him to go back to sea.  

This was a big regret to him for the rest of his life.

Whilst in Cape Town he had 2 tattoos on his arm, a Union Jack and two clasped hands - 1 male 1 female.

I attach a postcard showing the Edinburgh Castle from that era.
