    Any advice?
    Thank you

    Hi Bob,

    Dear Bob, Just remembered something - try e-bay as there are sellers on there who sell ship photos. Also, I think you can make a 'wish list' and if one comes up for sale you will be notified. As luck had it, I found the Chepman photo. in one of my computer picture folders but don't know where I got it. When back from hols. will look to see if I can find the original (or where mine came from) as have storage boxes of all sorts to do with dad's Memoirs just no time to look. Cheers. H

    Hello Bob
    I was sparks on Mystic in 1961 whilst she was on charter to Shaw Saville from Furness Withy.
    I have tried to upload a photo but couldn't manage it. If you want I can send you the photo as an email attachment.
    Cheers
    Malcolm Davidson

    #24 Malcolm. Re Mystic, I possess a book Fifty Years With The Prince Line. Captain R. C. Proctor. His last years were on the Mystic from 24/05/1960 - 29/05/1963 so possible you sailed with him. Photographs from book.
    Bill.
