Peter Carter

I sailed with Pete Carter when he was First Officer of the "Winchester Castle", a very popular man and then (1959) one of the Company's confirmed bachelors.

Some time later he surprised everyone by getting married and leaving the sea.

Somewhat of a larger than life character you never had to look far to find Peter, you heard his laugh long before seeing him!


Beer time, noon on "Winchester Castle" Tourist Class. 1959

Can anyone put a name to the Fourth R/O and deck steward?
