    Sounds good Brett
    Once you have all that info with his CRS10 if you want to persue things futher, then with the Ships lists they will hold, you can then start the Crew Lists From Canada if they are available. Also the Ships Movement Cards , those too if available , as a lot of old things either got destroyed,or lost over the Years!
    Good luck and do keep us informed when things happen LOL

    I was sent this photo by my sister, which is again, of my father (William Gibson) in uniform. I can just make out the photographers markings in the lower right corner and see it was taken in Auckland in c.1950. Trying to work out if the cap badge in this image matches or aligns with your Shaw Savill & Albion badge. Also, can anyone identify the uniform as the rank is on the shoulder board and not the sleeve?

    That looks like the same Badge so i think i was correct in the first place Brett.
    That Shoulder Stripe is either 4th Engineer or 3rd Officer
