    It would help if you could give us some information on what years he was at sea.

    Dear Deep Sea,
    As far as is known, he would have been at sea from 1933-1958.

    Ray,

    Hello Fred, no, they are not his parents. His birth certificate contradicts this.
    Many thanks for your interest.
    Kind Regards,
    Ray
