Capt Harvey Northwood

Letter from John Lester

I enquired off Reg Kelso as to whether he could trace any record of an uncle of mine by the name of Captain Harvey Northwood who retired before the war from Union Castle and had, I believe, been made Commodore and commanded RMMV 'Stirling Castle' before his retirement.

Whilst I met Captain Northwood (who was not a true uncle but a relative on my mother's side) I was young at the time and am not sure whether that information was completely correct. I do know that he lived at Brockenhurst in Hampshire but Reg was unable to find any record of him when he searched the Master Mariners Register.

Best regards,

John Lester
