SS CHUSCAL, 12th April 1966
Five men lost overboard.
William Leslie Harvey
Alan Robert McLintock Moodie
Michael Sydney Smith
Richard Martin Willcock
I am Michael Smith's Son Kevin. I was four years old when I lost my Dad and have never had the chance to visit a grave side, say goodbye or just sit and chat.
These men have no known grave except the sea.
You can help me put that right.
After 51 years these shipmates are going to be laid to rest at the National Memorial Arbouetum.
Together with Fyffe I am organising an event which will take place on the 12th April 2018.
I need to contact the families of these sailors so that they may be able to say a final goodbye and finally
lay them to rest.
If you have any contact or information about the families please let them know what is happening or let me know so that I may contact them, or they can contact me on 01474709529 or 07944833955.
Fyffe are paying for the dedication and memorial plaque and I am trying to raise funds for the meet and greet, the service and the refreshments.
If you knew any of the shipmates or would just like to come along please do, you are all welcome, just let me know.
Please copy and paste to any sites that you may feel could help.
Thanking you all in advance.
Proud too be doing this
