James Dearness

Hi Owen

My brother (Terry Toohey) forwarded the staff register web page to me.

I joined the "Windsor Castle" in August 1962 and left her in December 1963.  After a spell of sick leave I joined the "Pretoria Castle" in April 1964 for 2 trips. leaving to get married in July 1964.

I met my husband on the Windsor - he is James Dearness and was 2nd Purser Catering.  Unfortunately he now has severe dementia and lives in a care home as he needs 24-hour attention.

Good luck with the website.
