Hello! My father, Terence Roy Parsons, always known as Roy, died in February his year aged 92.

He joined the Clan Line as a cadet in 1944 and sailed in convoys across the Atlantic in the Clan Colquhoun under Capt Hogg.

He sailed in many of the Clan Line ships, eventually in command, until his sudden redundancy when so many of the ships were sold. He shared with me many tales of his experiences especially in the last 18 months of his life.

I would love to learn more and hear from those who sailed with my father.

Thank you!
