Dr John Latham


Clansman - April 1977

Clansman - July/August 1978

My own memories of Dr John are of a kind and committed ship’s surgeon.

Always popular with the passengers and someone who joined in all the fun of the mail ships.

Personally we used to make up a golfing three-ball each voyage together with Captain Harold Charnley when we were together on Pendennis Castle.

We used to visit Humewood Golf Club in Port Elizabeth and Durban Country Club.
