Hi Chris,

I served with Clan Line and Union Castle as a Deck Officer before 'swallowing the anchor' in 1971.

I spent a year on the Reina Del Mar and also the Windsor Castle as extra second officer.

I am trying to track down a couple of assistant pursers with whom I served. Catherine (Fitzroy?) and Sheila Macdonald. Any suggestions or assistance you can give would be much appreciated.

Kind regards

David Pike

Moved here when I was posted to Lowdham Grange as Deputy Governor. Subsequent postings were covered where possible from my 50 foot narrow boat which enabled us to give our two daughters continuity in their education.
