Christopher Brown

Chris was one of those 'always enthusiastic' men, I cannot recall him being anything other than cheerful, one tended to hear his laugh before seeing him.

We sailed together as cadets and later fourth mates.

He was a very keen R.N.R. officer, somehow I think that he may have been better suited to the Royal than Merchant navy.   

Anyhow it was all academic because he married and went farming in Oxfordshire.
