George Watson

From the CLANSMAN (no 71) December 1987


Mr. George Watson died on August 16, aged 94.  Mr Watson joined the "Balmoral Castle" as junior 6th engineer in September 1921.  He was appointed chief engineer of "Kenilworth Castle" in July 1946 and retired from the "Arundel Castle" in December 1957.


Note


Mr. Watson lived in retirement in Brookvale Road, Southampton.  He and my father in the early 1960's became firm friends, alternating weekly evening visits.   Sadly as so often happens with two elderly widowers they had a falling out and  the friendship ended.  O.G.K.
