PERSONAL SUMMARY

Sought opportunity for a career at sea following educational cruise on ss Nevasa in 1968.

Joined B&C September 1970 and enjoyed service record shown.

Whilst J4O Pendennis Castle, met Viv travelling as passenger (to nurse in SA) - married 4 years later, 2 children.

Personal aspirations and decline of B&C fleet led me to follow a degree education (working coastal as “student holiday job!) and leave B&C in 1978.

Final discharge book entry was my only month's service as 2/O.

Joined Thoresen Car Ferries as shore-side operational manager and later followed a career in customer service management with various major organisations.

Living in Wimborne, Dorset. Retain a strong interest in 1940-1980 general cargo shipping and post-1940 passenger shipping.
